NOBLESVILLE, Ind. - A group of local nonprofits will receive $4,455 after students at Noblesville’s seven elementary raised the money by collecting change during a five-day ‘Coin Harvest’ in November. 

Teachers asked students to bring loose change or complete chores for money, which they dropped into a classroom bucket. The classroom that collected the most money at each school won a pizza party with Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear.

“We cannot thank our elementary students, teachers and parents enough for their continued participation in the Coin Harvest and support of Noblesville nonprofits,” said Ditslear. “I also want to thank The Farmers Bank employees for tallying up all of the change and assisting with the program.”

The nonprofits include the Noblesville Youth Assistance Program, Noblesville Firefighters Christmas Food and Toy Drive, The Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville, and the Trinity Free Clinic.

“I hope the Coin Harvest establishes the importance of helping others and donating to worthy local charities in our kindergarten through fifth-grade students. If the sentiment of this program has a lasting impact on our students, it will serve our community well in the future,” Ditslear said.

The 2018 Mayor’s Charity Jubilee will be held July 13.
