Pitt County Schools Collect Change All Week For Diabetes Research

Just ask the students at the Chicod School in Pitt County. Throughout the week, hundreds of the schools' students raised money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation one coin at a time. The students brought in a different coin each day. Tuesday was a penny; Wednesday a nickel; Thursday a dime and Friday a quarter. One first grade teacher says some of the Chicod School faculty will also participate in Saturday's JDRF walk in Greenville at the Pitt County Fairgrounds. Registration starts at 9 a.m. and the walk kicks off at 10:30.
