Penny Wars 2016
DID YOU KNOW… from 2005 to 2015, HCA students have raised $71,237.28 for missions?! We have sent differing amounts all over the world and helped the gospel go forth by meeting practical needs of people that God cares for. WAY TO GO.
Each year leading up to the Heartland Missions Conference, students at Heartland Christian Academy & Boarding School participate in what we call Penny Wars. They bring in as many pennies as they can for 4 weeks to help raise money for the missionaries we support here at Heartland. Silver coins such as quarters, nickels, and dimes, along with dollar bills, are called bombs and count as negative points. The students get an opportunity every morning to bomb another class of their choice. In the end, however, all proceeds go to support a great cause.
This year the funds raised with Penny Wars will go to Tanzania. Students decorated their jars, and the war began February 1st. There will be weekly prizes again for the overall MS/HS and Elementary winner, then an Overall Winner for each MS/HS and Elementary at the end of Penny Wars.
Students are aiming high! If you would like to donate to the student or class of your choice, use the following e-giving link to make an online donation.
