Giving Opportunities

Home Football Games
DSF board members grill burgers and sell meals at JHS home football games. The JHS Booster Club gives DSF scholarship money for heading up the meal deal each year.


Phone-a-Thon
This is a major fundraiser for DSF. JHS students place calls to community members from Pioneer for four evenings in November: 13th, 14th, 20th, and 21st. Johnston High School National Honor Society students make calls over the course of the four nights. A mailing to the Johnston community is sent following the phone-a-thon. See the Phone-a-thon Event page for details.
