Super Stop! convenience stores of Meridian will be donating all proceeds from coffee sales sold on Feb. 12-14 to the Mississippi Society for Disabilities.
The Mississippi Society for Disabilities was formerly a branch of the Easter Seals society and Super Stop! has had a vital role in fund-raising by donating proceeds from every store during the "Coffee Days" promotion.

Currently, the Mississippi Society for Disabilities supports Central Mississippi Speech and Language Clinic, camp scholarships and Mississippi's Client Assistance Program.
