SCCRC to Endow $10,000 to Ozarka College
Published on January 2, 2019
Ozarka College is very pleased to accept another $10,000 endowment from the Stone County Community Resource Council (SCCRC) in Mountain View, Arkansas. The SCCRC is comprised of volunteers who collect, sort, and donate items through the Dorcas House Thrift Store where most of the items are sold for just 25-cents each, or $2.00 per bag.
These small purchases really add up; so much so that they have brought the total donations from the SCCRC for Ozarka College students to an incredible $130,000! The monetary contributions that the SCCRC has made to Ozarka College only begins to touch the surface of the lives they are changing. Of the $130,000 donated, $110,000 has been designated for scholarships and $20,000 for priority College enhancements.
The $110,000 in scholarship donations from SCCRC have been awarded to students in $500 increments, and these students must reside in Stone County. By doing this, countless students have been, and will continue to be assisted in their educational endeavors by these generous donations.
Since the SCCRC is a nonprofit organization, charitable donations are tax deductible. Donations can be dropped off at the Dorcas House, located on School Street in Mountain View, Arkansas.
