Coins for a cause

Premium parking spaces on Destin Commons' interior streets cost just 25¢ for fifteen minutes, or $1 per hour. Shoppers who go over the allotted time are given a "parking ticket" and encouraged to make a $3 donation to Coins for a Cause.

Since its inception 15 years ago, Destin Commons has donated over $1.3 million dollars to surrounding area charities through the Coins for a Cause program and will continue to support local community organizations through your generous giving – Makes cents, doesn't it?
