PALM DESERT, Calif. - Hundreds of College of the Desert students had a chance to meet and thank their scholarship donors at the 7th annual Donor Scholarship Reception.
The event also gives donors the opportunity to meet students who directly benefited from their generosity.
"We are very blessed and very thankful for all of these donors to be here and to express our gratitude towards them," said Kassidi Campbell, COD student.
Donors give the COD Foundation thousands of dollars annually to help students with tuition, books, childcare, and transportation.
The students apply for the scholarships and are studying various disciplines on campus.
