Donate to the Penny Drive

Kids for Kids Penny Drive

The Community Day Penny Drive is part of the Kids for Kids educational and fundraising program. In a typical year, a dozen Joya families volunteer their time to visit 75 area schools and share their children’s stories with more than 35,000 schoolchildren. The school presentations increase understanding and open the door to acceptance and friendship for children with special needs. Generous schoolchildren donate pennies, change, and even dollars to help Joya serve children. Community and school penny drives have raised a total of more than $3.3 million since 1996.
