Dollars for Scholars School & Family Drive Kick-Off

Principals and school coordinators from around the Jefferson Parish Public School System (JPPSS) recently gathered to learn more about the 2015 Dollars for Scholars School & Family Drive, which will be held from February 23-27, 2015 in all Jefferson Parish Public Schools.

Those gathered shared suggestions for fundraising including dress down day, silly sock day, car wash and other events to engage students.

According to May Wen, program director for Dollars for Scholars, the fundraising goal for 2015 is 100 percent of last year’s goals. Dollars raised help support Dollars for Scholars’ college scholarship and summer camp enrichment scholarship programs.

For more information, please contact your JPPSS school or visit the Dollars for Scholars website.
