It's more than just coins in a jar. It's a fundraiser that gives hope to kids with cancer and other serious illnesses.
They're counting the coins at Hominy Valley Elementary school, and they know every penny counts!
The kids are collecting money for Arts for Life. Volunteers with the non-profit teach visual arts, music, and creative writing to patients at Mission Children's Hospital.
The program reaches over 2,000 children each year, so students realize the importance of making sure they raise enough money to buy the many supplies that are needed.
The kids in grades K through 6th reached their $1,000 goal. That money will be used to by supplies for the Arts for Life.
