Elementary students pinch pennies for Kelberman Center

By WKTV News

WHITESBORO, N.Y. (WKTV) - Elementary students and their families at one local school pinched pennies and pocket change for about two weeks to raise money for the Kelberman Center. The result: $1,200 dollars, presented on Wednesday to the center.

The money will help with summer programs that serve some 60 children.

Students at Harts Hill Elementary School in Whitesboro took part in the "Change Challenge."

It was an initiative put together by a grandparent of one of the students at Harts Hill Elementary. The school's principal brought the program into the school, but ultimately, it was the students and their families, who raised the money.

The Kelberman Center serves children and adults who are diagnose with some form of autism, as well as people who have developmental characteristics similar to those of the neurological disorder.
