Illinois Proud Penny Drive Officially Underway

The Illinois Proud Penny Drive is officially underway. Students at Butler Elementary School began filling buckets with the pennies they’ve already collected for a countywide drive to raise money to purchase a historic Lincoln document and return it to Illinois for the state’s Bicentennial.

More than 60 schools across Sangamon County are taking part in the drive through April 30th . Adults can also help with the effort by making donations through Bank of Springfield.
