Habitat for Humanity Josh’s Penny Campaign

Since deciding to help with a penny drive he saw at the Uxbridge, Ontario ReStore, 15-year-old Josh Morrison has raised almost $24,000. To help raise the money, Josh started a penny drive at his school and has extended to schools all over Uxbridge and Stouffville, Ontario as well as businesses, restaurants, churches and clubs in the surrounding area. He is working towards his goal of collecting 10 million pennies ($100,000) by the end of 2016. Josh has spoken at the Uxbridge’s Chamber of Commerce and continues to bring his campaign to various community events. Now that pennies are getting harder to find, Josh is also accepting larger coins or bills to get to his goal. Why he loves volunteering for Habitat: “I’m volunteering because I want to build hope for those who can’t afford a safe home. I want to show others that they can make a difference!”
