The Twinfield community came together for the ninth year running to collect for families in need. Students in grades 7-12 collected money while students in grades Pre K-6 collected nonperishable food items. The Penny Challenge runs for the two weeks leading up to December break each year, and supports the Onion River Food Shelf. The Onion River Foodshelf serves the Plainfield and Marshfield communities. Students compete as grade levels for bragging rights and winter carnival points by bringing in their pennies and silver change—pennies count as positive points for a grade while silver change counts as negative points.The Penny Challenge has been extremely successful over the past nine years raising over $32,000 for the Onion River Food Shelf alongs with hundreds of pounds of nonperishable food. This year alone students and local donors raised almost $3500! The coveted four winter carnival points were awarded to the senior class who finished the challenge heads and tails above the rest. A huge thank you to all who have supported the event for the past nine years!
