Youth at the North Springfield Baptist Church collected pennies, each one to represent a hungry child in the state of Vermont. The Penny Project collected $239.59 in pennies, exchanged them for cash and took the funds to Main Street Market in N. Springfield to purchase infant formula and other related items for babies.
Main Street Market purchased the food wholesale and helped round out the donation as well.
