Turn Your Pennies into Dreams
Yankee Pennysaver, western Connecticut's premiere direct-mailed shopping guide, wants to collect one million pennies to support the efforts of Dream Come True of Western Connecticut. "We all have pennies and other coins sitting in jars, drawers and piggy banks that are doing nothing," says Steven Silver, publisher of the Pennysaver and treasurer of DCT. "Let's put them to good use." This is a wonderful way to get the Dream Recipients' peers involved and helping.
During this year-long campaign, with the support of the community, Dream Come True hopes to use these coins to fund two additional dreams for chronically or terminally ill children.
