Small Change in Fountain Adds Up to Big Bucks
Cleveland Clinic's Strongsville Health Center is a penny magnet
Visitors at the Cleveland Clinic's Strongsville Family Health & Surgery Center often toss pennies and other change into the streaming fountain in the main lobby.
It adds up to a few dollars a day. And over the years, it has added up to thousands.
Economic Development Director Brent Painter said the Clinic has collected $11,000 from the fountain since the building opened.
"That's about $2 a day people are throwing in there," Painter said.
It's all donated to charity.
