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.
