Donor Revives ‘Penny March’ with Gift to SMCH

Sevierville, TN–Vina Duncan represents many senior adults who have made the choice to continue their service unto the Lord even after retirement years. Duncan is 87 years young, and as stated by Doug Losch, “Has no retirement date set. She desires to continue working for God.” She decided to help raise funds for the Smoky Mountain Children’s Home through a “penny” drive.

Vina Duncan

Vina is a member of the Valley Station Church of God, in Louisville, Kentucky. Her pastor is Reverend Timothy James Bass. The church recently presented a check in the amount of $2,026.00 to the Smoky Mountain Children’s Home. When Valley Station initiated the project, immediately a member of the church (who desires to remain anonymous) gave $1,000 towards the project. The balance of the $1,026.00 was raised by people giving literally thousands of pennies to the Children’s Home.

Losch, a member of the Valley Station church, delivered the check to the Children’s Home and stated, “We feel honored and blessed to share in supporting the Smoky Mountain Children’s Home.” Dr. Walt Mauldin, Executive Director of the Children’s Home, noted his thankfulness for the generous gift and ingenuity of Sister Vina to continue the tradition of the “penny march” to raise funds for The Home. Losch stated, “We look forward to seeing you again when we get our 25-gallon can full of pennies!”
