Hoglan Elementary staff, students and families had a penny war recently, collecting more than $3,200 in one week.
The money raised was donated to the Marshalltown Police Department K-9 Unit. Sgt. Melinda Ruopp, her K-9 partner, Awol, and other members of the MPD visited Hoglan today to accept the donation.
See more from Awol’s visit to Hoglan on the WHO-HD Channel 13 News at Five tonight (Thursday, April 4).
