Dollars for Scholars kicks off phone-a-thon March 29, March 31

The annual Dollars for Scholars fundraising phone-a-thon is Monday, March 29 and Wednesday, March 31.

Started locally in 1995, Dollars for Scholars involves students making phone calls to area residents to determine if they want to contribute to the fund to aid students continuing their education following high school.

Since its inception, Dollars for Scholars has distributed $156,150 in scholarships. Last year, $16,000 was awarded to 35 recipients.

The Morris Area senior class will be conducting the annual phone-a-thon asking for donations. The phone-a-thon is the only fundraiser for Dollars for Scholars, and all the money raised and 90 percent of the interest earnings go to scholarships.
