Mom, Daughter who Received Child Support Payment in Pennies Donate it to Charity
The Virginia mother and daughter who received an $800 child support payment in pennies say they’ve donated the pile of 80,000 coins to a local charity.
Avery Sanford, 18, says she and her mom collected the pennies that her estranged dad dumped in their front yard and have turned the money over to Safe Harbor Shelter, which supports abused women.
“They were able to turn such a negative experience, and what her daughter witnessed, into a positive,” says Safe Harbor Director Cathy Easter. “They found a way to turn this around and not feel devastated about it.”
