Destin Commons recently made a $500 donation to the Junior League of the Emerald Coast. They are a non-profit organization of nearly 300 Northwest Florida Panhandle women who engage in community impact programs. The Junior League's purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

A $1,000 donation was made to the Distinguished Young Women of Florida's scholarship program. Young ladies, both local and from around Florida, gathered at Destin Commons for an arrival ceremony for a convention that was hosted by Okaloosa County.

The donations were made through Destin Commons’ Coins For A Cause program, which was created to help benefit local charities with the monies collected from the center’s parking meters. Coins For A Cause has donated more than $1.2 million to area charities since its inception 10 years ago.
