Change for a Change

Change for a Change is making an appearance again this year... collecting change to make a difference! Last year Burroughs Community School raised over $1,200 in just a week of collecting change.

The Change for a Change team was inspired by the Love your Melon story and will be donating to Love your Melon's partner Pab's Packs this year. The committee selected this charity based on three important criteria: a local Minneapolis organization, something on the smaller side, and one that has a direct impact on kids.

A little bit about Pab's Packs
Staying in the hospital can be very difficult for children and their families. During this challenging time, often the simplest things are the most comforting, such as a warm hat, a soft blanket or a note of encouragement. Pab's Packs creates packs filled with comfort items to support children and teens during their stay in the hospital.

We will be collecting change Monday, May 22 - Friday, May 26.

A little bit can go a long way! It makes cents to donate...EVERY CENT COUNTS!
