In the short time since this fund was established, we have raised $12,000 in individual donations. In addition, the Foundation itself donated added $10,000 for a total of $22,000. We have been able to help approximately 150 of our hardest hit students with emergency funding of $150 each.
Unfortunately the need continues to be overwhelming and with no end in sight. We are asking for your continued support. Whether you choose to support one student, or many, we ask that you do what you can.
Our students have been heavily impacted by this crisis and many have nowhere else to turn.
