The DSC Alumni and Friends Association continues to work toward strengthening our community by providing assistance, guidance, and encouragement to current Daytona State College students. With our Helping Hands Fund, we’re seeking to expand that assistance through micro-grants to students in dire need. Whether it’s $50 for gas to get to school, or $100 to keep the power turned on, these small, one time, need based grants help students get past the everyday barriers to their success.

Your support during Homecoming 2018 will make that difference in a student’s life: any amount, no matter how big or small, means lending a Helping Hand to a Falcon in need.

Please donate today. Contact Josh Poniatowski (386) 506-3803 to make your donation today.
