Mid-South community helps WMC raise more than $320K to provide headsets for Shelby County Schools students

Thank you Mid-South for helping WMC raise more than a quarter of a million dollars for SCS

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - We want to thank our donors for helping us smash our goal for Monday’s donation drive for Shelby County Schools.

WMC set out to raise $140,000 for SCS Headsets for Learning. The community’s support prompted us to raise our goal Monday afternoon to $175,000 and then again to $240,000.

By the end of our drive, you helped us collect $322,832 for SCS students. A few last minute donations, including an anonymous $20,000 gift, took us well past the $300,000.
