Pennies for Presents returns


Annual fundraiser to provide gifts and dinners for local families is led by new faces this year

Pennies for Presents returns this year to help area families in need for this holiday season.

Wyatt and Jake Brawner, students in the Canby School District, are now leading this nonprofit fundraiser, which 15-year-old Loren Hahn founded in 2010 as a community service project.

Over these past three years, money raised has helped provide toys for children and a Christmas dinner for the families. Last year, the program helped four families. This year, with the support of many Canby businesses and private donations, the new faces in charge hope to do even better.

Pennies for Presents is looking for people’s spare change at local businesses in Canby.

For more information, or to make a donation, contact Scott or Nancy Brawner at 503-266-1423.
