ATLANTA PROJECT 'PENNIES' DRIVE PASSES MILLION MILESTONE

 ATLANTA PROJECT 'PENNIES' DRIVE PASSES MILLION MILESTONE
 ATLANTA, Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pennies From Heaven drive to raise money for President Carter's Atlanta Project on Thursday reached $10,800, which would represent donations by individuals of more than 1 million pennies to the Carter Center's effort to address the social problems associated with poverty in Atlanta.
 Wachovia Bank of Georgia said people are including checks, dollar bills and other coins in the bags and containers of money they bring to Wachovia for Pennies From Heaven.
 "While donations have been mainly pennies, we are pleased that people are not taking Pennies From Heaven too literally," said David L. Holton, manager of Wachovia's Atlanta-area branches. "During the collections before Atlanta Braves home games, for example, fans sometimes contribute all the coins in their pockets, or give a $1, $5 or $10 bill."
 Pennies and other coins do not have to be wrapped, counted or collected in special containers. Donations made at Wachovia branches are acknowledged by a Pennies From Heaven thank-you note with the signature of Jimmy Carter.
 Pennies From Heaven is sponsored by Wachovia and Pringle Dixon Pringle.
