Ambler, PA - 12-Year-Old Kicks Off ‘Millions to Remember’ Penny Drive

Ambler, PA - A 12-year-old Philadelphia girl aims to collect 6 million pennies for a human rights organization.

Jenna Steinbrink presents her first installment — a check for $5,000 — on Monday at the Manhattan offices of The Simon Wiesenthal (VEEZ’-ehn-thahl) Center.

She started her “Millions to Remember” penny drive to memorialize the 6 million lives lost in the Holocaust. Her bat mitzvah is being held in a few weeks, but she plans to continue her fundraising through high school.

Says Jenna: “It’s about raising awareness of all ethnicities and religions and the celebration of diversity. That’s what life is all about.”

If you’d like more information on the campaign, e-mail Steinbrink at or send your pennies or a check payable to Millions to Remember, P.O. Box 872, Ambler, PA 19002-0872.
