Read More About the Emergency Fund
Many of our hardworking, highly motivated students have been significantly impacted by COVID-19. To date, a total of 45 students have been placed in a 14-day self-quarantine given direct exposure to the Coronavirus. As a result, these students, many of whom are parents or sole providers of their families, are unable to work at part or full time jobs and need aid with groceries, rent assistance and basic living expenses such as medication, utilities, and diapers for children, during this time.
As the situation develops, we are also seeing more and more students, particularly our veteran and work study students, negatively impacted due to college closure which is necessary to slow community spread of the virus.
Please give today to help us meet the matching challenge led by James Kinsella and Robert McNeal, who have provided a challenge grant of $25,000 to set up a special student emergency fund to support LWTech students specifically impacted by COVID-19. Our goal is to make sure our students adversely impacted by this crisis is supported with basic needs during this time.
