Pennies, pennies everywhere?

Are your pennies obsolete? We can turn your pennies back into useful money. The only catch is that you have to give them to the Northumberland Humane Society. A Matter of Taste (on behalf of the NHS) in Cobourg, the NHS Thrift Shop in Cobourg and the Northumberland Humane Society on Ward Street in Port Hope, will happily take your useless pennies and put them to good use; Saving Lives!

However please contact the NHS with your intentions prior to commencing your fundraiser. We currently have many third party fundraisers that are either already in the works or will be soon.
