BOMA recognizes 14-year-old Cameron Cox for selfless fundraising efforts

Cameron Cox recognized for Penny and a Prayer

Cameron D. Cox, 14, at the April 17 board meeting was recognized by the Spring Hill Board of Mayor and Aldermen for her altruistic “Penny and a Prayer” campaign to collect donations to help aid the living conditions of families in need.

Cameron initially wanted to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity but, for insurance liability reasons, was considered too young to work on building sites. Inspired by seeing someone drop loose change, she decided every penny can make a difference in the lives of those in need of basic shelter and began collecting small donations from friends and even teamed up with local fundraising sponsors.

The local Habitat office soon agreed to partner with her and the funds she raises will go directly into projects in Maury and Williamson counties.

Along with donations, she also has collected hundreds of pieces of paper with prayers written on them for the families who may one day be residents in the new homes.

Her fundraising efforts have been so effective that she was even recently selected for an honor by the President of the United States.

“Cameron has demonstrated that even the smallest of donations, when collected with prayers, love and passion, can make a big difference in the lives of others in our community,” Mayor Rick Graham said. “The City of Spring Hill appreciates Ms. Cox for her commitment and love for her community.”
