Every weekend, the people at Heartland drop a dollar or more into the blue bottles around the mall and 100% of the donations we receive go right back out to the community. We used last weekend’s Change for a Dollar and combined it with this week’s for a gift to Rockford Promise of $741.00.
Rockford Promise is a location-based scholarship program. In partnership with Rock Valley College and Rockford University, they give full cost scholarships to RPS graduates so they can attend college debt free. Modeled after successful programs in Kalamazoo, Pittsburg and other communities, the goal of Rockford Promise is to make post-secondary education affordable for students in our community.
Thank you for partnering with this great organization. Keep dropping those dollars in the buckets every weekend, and we’ll keep making change for a dollar together!
