Eisenhower Elementary School, Coon Rapids, students were served lunch last week by some visitors in appreciation for donations to the monthly Kookies Penny Drive.
Chuck Holden, District 11 chief financial officer; Mary Fonken-Holden, retired District 11 student services director; and Linda Syverson, a retired District 11 cook, served lunch Feb. 9.
Students make donations in a jar in the cafeteria, with proceeds benefiting a different organization each month.
February donations benefit the American Cancer Society. In January, $58.54 was collected for the Coon Rapids Northstar Lions Club.
