The Christmas Change War is the collecting of loose change to benefit those in the community who have needs, but these are donations with a twist! 

Seven jars will be placed in the cafeteria, one for each of the following groups: seventh grade, eighth grade, freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors and faculty. Non-penny donations placed in the jars are counted positively for the jar; however, pennies in the jar deduct from the jar's total.  For example, if the faculty has $5.00 in donations, yet someone has placed $3.00 in pennies in the jar, the faculty is only credited with $2.00! A running total will continue for the two weeks of the event.

At the end of each day the totals are counted to determine who is winning the change war, but the real winners are those in need.  All money (pennies included) are donated to the Arlington Business and Professionals association for philanthropic use.
