Penny Harvest Tackles Turtle Needs in Central Park
Jordan’s face lit up with excitement as the bright red lid came off the plastic container housing the first of many turtles that he and his fellow Philanthropy Roundtable members would be seeing that day. Lorie Cramer, a member of the New York Turtle and Tortoise Society, was sharing some of her rehabilitated turtles in an interactive presentation at The Computer School in Manhattan.

Join us as we celebrate students across NYC at 4th annual Run for Change. Since the fall, over 300,000 students answered the call to service by collecting pennies, totaling 4,607 sacks and $36,283.72 in cash and checks.
As an alumna of PS6, the Penny Harvest is a huge part of my life. I began participating in the Penny Harvest in the third grade, where I attended weekly meetings during my lunch period to be part of the Roundtable.
