Vachel Lindsay Elementary, along with other Sangamon County schools, is collecting pennies and donations to bring an important piece of history back to Illinois. Proceeds from this penny drive will be used to purchase the historic document that certified Abraham Lincoln could begin his career as a lawyer in Springfield, Illinois.
Any amount of pennies will be accepted through April 27 (either in coins or paper money). Checks can be made payable to the “Illinois Proud Penny Drive”.
The coin jar will be in the school office- Let’s fill it up!
