O’FALLON – Central School District 104 held a penny war and raised $800 that was donated to the American Red Cross disaster relief fund. Kerri Thaler, a teacher at Central Elementary School, came up with the idea to help hurricane victims. 

“Our generous staff, students, and their families showed generosity that will impact many people in need,” Central Elementary Principal Jayson Baker said. 

A check to American Red Cross was presented on Tuesday, Nov. 27.
