Hoglan Principal Amy Williams hands a check to Marshalltown Police Chief Mike Tupper for the penny war her school held in support of the MPD K-9 Unit.

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).

    Seeing the results of the penny wars as a parent of Hoglan students…what else can we come together for and help with? I would love to help to organize more activities that we can do to raise awareness to causes such as child abuse prevention since it is child abuse prevention month. It doesn’t always have to be money that we raise. I loved the energy the children of Hoglan expressed in the Penny War and Hoglan made it truely fun for a very important cause in our community. I feel with that energy we can do more….up for suggestions so please let me know if I can help.
