Teton Literacy Center wants your foreign change

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Not sure what to do with that spare change from your spring travels? Put it to use supporting literacy programs in Teton County. Teton Literacy Center will be collecting currencies from all counties to raise funds for programs and explore different cultures and countries with students. “We hope this will be a way for families and community members to contribute to TLC after spring travels, but also an avenue for project based learning. TLC students will have a hands on experience and take a lead role in this project,” said TLC Executive Director Laura Soltau. Community members and travelers can donate leftover coins and bills from spring travels to Teton Literacy Center. Look for collection jars at Teton County School District schools, First Interstate Bank branches, Jackson Hole Airport and Teton Literacy Center. All money donated will support TLC programs. Students in Teton County will be supporting TLC programs by collecting loose change in Foreign Currencies. During TLC programs, students will help collect and count the money before it is converted. They will graph the amount raised and countries represented. All currencies will be accepted. Teton Literacy Center’s Currency Exchange Fundraising Campaign began on March 21 and runs through April 29. *Feature Photo: h/t Teton Literacy Center / Pitchengine Communities* #buckrail #news
