COVID-19 Emergency Donations Requested 

hide

Your financial assistance is needed now more than ever to support our most vulnerable students who are attempting to cope with the ongoing detrimental effects of COVID-19. Many of these students work in retail, food and hospitality service industries. They have been laid-off, work hours cut, and/or forced to scale back on their work schedules due to childcare demands after the closing of school districts across the state.
