How much money is one million pennies ? : Church collects one million pennies to build wells in Africa

JACKSON, MI – A single penny weighs 2.5 grams. One million pennies , however, weighs more than 5,500 pounds, and that can have quite the impact on a single community.
Immanuel Lutheran Church in Jackson knows the million pennies it's collected can change the lives of those living in Malawi, Zambia and Tanzania. With the million pennies, which is $10,000, the church will help build 25 wells in these African countries.
Stan Fracker, the coordinator of the project "Pennies for Wells," wanted to show the children at his church how much of an impact something so small could make.
