The Young Philanthropists Foundation caught up with Penny Harvest Student Leaders from Holyoke Elementary School during a neighborhood service project to find out what the program means to them, and how they make their tough grant decisions.
As one student leader commented: "Penny Harvest is hanging out and talking about stuff, and telling people what it means to give and share." When asked where they granted the money they collected, the student replied: "Homeless and animal shelters, I think those were two main ones, and also orphans, and people who don't have things, like for disaster relief." The Holyoke Roundtable Leaders also granted a portion of their grant-making budget to two local residents in need.
Thanks for sharing student leaders! You guys are making a huge difference in our community!
