Here at JA of Lincoln, we’re all about teaching our students to make every penny count. One of the best ways to make pennies count, of course, is to combine them with a lot of other pennies! And that’s exactly what we’re going to be doing all throughout November!
Throughout the month, customers at U-Stop Convenience Stores will have the opportunity to turn their spare change into a brighter future for Lincoln’s students. As part of the “Coins for Kids: Your Gift is Their Future” campaign, collection canisters will be displayed on U-Stop checkout counters. By dropping in their extra change, customers will be helping to bring financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and business ethics programs to K-12 classrooms all across Lincoln.
We hope you’ll be on the lookout for our collection canisters the next time you stop for gas or a snack. Drop in some extra change and watch it make a difference!
Junior Achievement of Lincoln wishes to thank U-Stop Convenience Stores and Whitehead Oil for helping Lincoln’s youth to own their economic success!
