The Quarter Mile Project

May 28 – June 28, 2024

The Quarter Mile Project is a collection of 15,840 quarters via donation cans placed at local businesses. Donations can also be made via PayPal and Venmo, and any electronic donations will be converted to quarters.

Why that many quarters? 15,840 quarters will stretch a quarter (1/4) mile and raise $3,960 for In Love and Song. 

All funds raised during this campaign will kickstart In Love and Song's goal to provide a service animal to a brain tumor patient. If the full quarter mile of quarters is collected, we will be one quarter to that goal!

 

Conceived by local high school student, Jaime Myers, quarters will be collected at multiple locations in Central New Jersey until June 28th when the project culminates in an event at Lebanon Township Memorial Park in Califon, New Jersey, which will include performances by local students from the music program at her school and a ceremonial dumping of all of the cans of quarters collected!
