Easton Charity for Change
May & June
Easton Town Center
EastonWay Blog about DFYF

DFYF is honored to be chosen as the charity to receive proceeds from the parking meters and parking tickets at Easton during the months of May and June. Each coin dropped in a meter and each ticket paid helps fund DFYF’s programs and services. To date, $1.3 million has been donated to local charities through the Change for Charity Program. A huge thank you to the Easton Community Foundation!
