Catholic school students and families raise more than $19,000 through “Coins for Kids”

March 28, 2019

Students and families at 13 Catholic schools in the Diocese of Grand Rapids raised more than $19,000 for local pro-life efforts this past winter.

The “Coins for Kids” fundraiser supports Grand Rapids Right to Life and local agencies who provide material support to women and families facing unplanned pregnancies. Grand Rapids Right to Life gave baby bottles to each participating school, and then students and families took the bottles home to fill them with spare change.

Participating schools supported “Coins for Kids” in honor of Catholic Schools Week, Jan. 27- Feb. 2.

We’re proud of our students and families for helping provide for the littlest members of our community. Thank you for your generosity!
