Phone-a-thon

"Thank You for Not Hanging Up!"

Our annual Phone-a-Thon is our largest fundraiser of the year and takes place in November. In 2019, we awarded over $105,000 in scholarships to more than 250 students. Since our inception in 1987, we have helped more than 4,750 students and awarded over $1,700,000 in scholarships.


Johnston High School National Honor Society (NHS) students will be calling on November 17, 18, 24 and 25 from 6:00-8:30pm and asking for pledges. Corteva (formerly Pioneer) has generously allowed DSF to utilize their facility for the Phone-a-Thon. Therefore, if you receive a call from a Corteva number, please take the time to answer.  If you do not want to be on our call list in the future, please let the NHS student know. 


We really need your help!  Please don’t hang up!! The call only takes a few minutes and means a tremendous amount to our students in Johnston. It’s also an excellent opportunity to speak with one of our seniors volunteering their time to make the calls.


This year we've received a generous offer from a Johnston alum who will match donations from other Johnston alumni up to $10,000 through December 31st.  Now more than ever, please consider donating to this worthy cause!!
