Grove Interact which is made up of students at Grove Junior High School located in Elk Grove Village organized a fund raiser to help eradicate Polio.  Pennies for Polio was a fund raiser that students and staff donated to during lunch hours and between classes.  The Interact kids raised about $168.  The Elk Grove Rotary Club which sponsors the club matched the funds to bring the total to $336.  The kids then sent the contribution to Rotary International where The Bill Gates Foundation will do a two to one match which means an additional $672 will be added to the $334.  The total contribution to help eradicate Polio is over $1000.  This was a great fundraiser but was also a great way to raise awareness that Polio which was once fairly common here in the 50's and 60's is still a concern is some regions of the world.
