Did you know the Canadian penny is going out of circulation in the fall of 2012? At that time, pennies will start to be returned by businesses. This creates a unique fundraising opportunity for your church. All you need to do is find a pot or jar, collect your pennies and encourage others to do the same.
Is your church raising funds for a missions trip? Set up a Penny Pot in your church and invite members to recycle their obsolete pennies for kingdom work.
Is your church involved in a local community initiative? Your local grocer or hardware store might set up a Penny Pot right at the till on behalf of your summer camp, food bank or ESL program.
Otherwise, start a penny pot for your charity of choice (which could include CBOQ). This opportunity only comes once! For more ideas, contact Sue Chester by email or phone her at 416-620-2948.
