“2-1-1 Connections” serves the communities of Northwest, Louisiana, by assisting individuals, families, elderly, disabled, and those who are struggling to live independently, facing a crisis they need help to overcome. With over 275 categories of needs met each year in service to approximately 25,000 people annually – the often forgotten and cast away penny can bring help and value these in need.
“2-1-1 Connections” will provide the process for redeeming the pennies and coordinating the Harvest Teams of children in their selection of what needs they most want to make a difference. Each child may collect their pennies in any container that is easy to manage, clean, and safe for use during their collections.
If you, your neighborhood association, your church Sunday School class, or your child’s School or Classroom is interested in hosting a Penny Harvest, AND participating in choosing how their pennies are gifted to those in need:
Please contact Shirley Holder or Terri Axelson at “2-1-1 Connections” by dialing the three digits “2-1-1” on any phone to speak to them about hosting a Penny Harvest today!!!____________________________________________________________________________
