Northwest ‘Giving Day’ to coincide with Homecoming

Members of the Northwest Mississippi Community College community will come together to both celebrate Homecoming and make a difference in the lives of students on the Northwest Foundation’s third annual Rangers Giving Day.

This year’s Giving Day is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 21, to coincide with the college’s Homecoming. Organizers are calling on all alumni and supporters to consider a gift of any amount to help make the annual event a success.

Supporters can give directly to a scholarship or other fund of choice or by participating in the Ranger Run, a virtual 5K where individuals can “run, walk, bike or hike.” To register for the Ranger Run, visit
