The Penny Wars to Benefit Food2Kids
Date:August 30, 2017
Athens Technical College recently concluded their summer competition, The Penny Wars. The Penny Wars competition benefits Food2Kids, a program sponsored by The Northeast Georgia Food Bank. In total the College had five teams that worked very hard collecting just over $1,937. With that total amount, four students from Howard B. Stroud Elementary School were able to receive assistance. "We are more than thrilled with the results of The Penny Wars", stated Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) instructor Leslie McKenzie. Athens Technical College will be hosting this event again during the spring semester with hopes of beating their summer total.
The group that raised the most money was the Interior Design Student Association. The Interior Design Student Association will be presented with a trophy. ECCE, Program Chair Lisa White and instructor, Leslie McKenzie will present The Northeast Georgia Food Bank with the total donations collected.
