Our First Coin Banks in Florida

03/24/08

COTN’s Florida satellite office brought on our first volunteer Coin Bank Manager, Cathie Mannion. Since then Cathie helped organize our first push to place Coin Banks in the greater Orlando area. Three weeks ago we had a team of ten people from Summit Church (one of our biggest partners in Florida) that ventured into the local community to place Coin Banks in different establishments. In three hours, this team was able to place THIRTEEN Coin Banks!! Three weeks later the Florida office was already getting calls that the banks are full! This being our first attempt at penetrating our local area, is a huge accomplishment for the Florida office! (Coin Banks raise tens of thousands of dollars annually. Funds raised go directly toward our in-country agricultural programs that help feed our children. For more information on placing Coin Banks in your local community, e-mail info@COTNI.org.)
