Coon Rapids City Councilmember Denise Klint and Steve Wells, who will be sworn in to serve on the council in January, served lunch at the Coon Rapids school Nov. 27.

Each month the elementary school students and staff bring in donations to benefit a different organization as part of the Kookies Penny Drive.

November donations benefit the Coon Rapids Senior Center.

In October, $28.41 was collected for the Coon Rapids Fire Department.

December donations benefit the Christmas Committee.
