Penny Power Challenge

Penny Power

The American Red Cross delivers its services to those affected by disaster and emergency thanks to the generosity of our communities. Penny Power Challenge provides much needed resources to help us deliver our services to the Coastal Bend area by simply allowing our youth to collect pennies and loose change. Not only does it teach them the power of team work but it also presents a teachable value of giving back to their community.
