Pennies for PJ

DAILY NEWS STAFF REPORT

Inspired by a presentation given by Greg Mortenson, local fifth-grade student Sam Herwig, organized a “Pennies for PJ” fundraiser to help Doctor Craig L Perrinjaquet.

In recognition of Sam’s passion and under his leadership the students of Breckenridge Elementary School began collecting “Pennies for PJ” last fall in their classrooms. Alpine Bank challenged Sam and the students of Breckenridge Elementary and agreed to match their fundraising efforts dollar for dollar. The students collected $1135.48 in pennies.

A check was presented last week to Doc PJ before he left on his trip along with matching funds from Alpine Bank. The total of $2,270.96 collected will go toward Doc PJ’s efforts to provide basic health care to remote villages in Honduras.
