Change for Miles

Your Change - Changes Lives

About Change for Miles

By collecting loose change in a Change for Miles bottle, you help Miles Perret Cancer Services (MPCS) make a difference in the lives of those fighting, surviving, and living with cancer in Acadiana. The more bottles you fill, the more families we can help. Become a Change for Miles School or pick up a bottle at the MPCS office!


How Does It Work?

MPCS provides a speaker for a school wide presentation to kick off the project so students understand how they are helping and why it is important. MPCS provides special bottles for each student to collect change and information cards explaining the project to parents. Collection day includes a small thank you for each student from MPCS.
