Change For a Change

The change drive was a big hit for DeSoto County this Saturday!

McDonald’s, Arcadia Police Department and the DeSoto County Education Foundation partnered together to raise money for a scholarship fund.

Just over $1200 was donated in 8 hours!!!  As customers showed up at McDonald’s for their morning coffee or afternoon snack, they donated loose change from their pockets and automobiles.  Police officers served the meals and a few students stood at the door collecting the donations.


Thank you to everyone who came out to support this cause!

The Change for a Change Scholarship fund originated in 2016.  Last year 2 students were awarded $800 each.  The funds are distributed straight to the college of the scholarship recipient upon enrollment.
