Making cents out of Lent

the Inland Register

(From the May 16, 2013 edition of the Inland Register)

The youth group at St. Peter Parish, Spokane, participated in a Lenten almsgiving challenge: a Penny War. Four teams each filled their buckets with many pennies and dollars, while sabotaging the other teams by adding nickels, dimes and quarters. The teens raised $149.88 and the winning team, the boys, chose to donate this amount to Catholic Charities of Spokane.
