Customers were encouraged to donate their change at 23 downtown Vermillion businesses to help make a change in the community.

Downtown business Pressing Matters chose to match the funds raised in their business this year. When the Meckling Livestock 4-H Club heard about Pressing Matters' plan they gathered donations and brought them to Pressing Matters, knowing their funds would be matched.

The DVAT would like to thank the Vermillion area community for its generosity and support of the "Change For Change" project supporting the Vermillion Food Pantry.
