Customers were encouraged to donate their change at 26 Downtown Vermillion businesses during the month of December.  First Dakota National Bank, Pets Paw and Fox Trot Books chose to match the money they collected and Murph's Appliance added a generous donation to the cause.

The Vermillion Food Pantry has been serving the community for 29 years.  In 2012, 4603 people were fed by the community. 80 volunteers presently work at the Food Pantry.

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