Student Emergency Fund


About The Program

The objective of the Student Emergency Fund is to give immediate assistance to Students, and perhaps their families, by providing financial aid and/or gift-in-kind support.

This funding could be used to purchase items such as eyeglasses, EpiPens, medical supplies, food and clothing, transportation, to subsidize field trips, or to assist with additional financial needs that result from family crises (fire, flood, layoffs, illness, etc).

Student support provided in the 2020/21 school year

(included) grocery gift cards

I just want to say how much I appreciate this program!! It gives us (school staff) the opportunity to help families in need. With this program, when parents come in broken and beside themselves because they cannot provide for their children, or have had something horrific happen in their lives, we have the ability to say, “let me see what we can do”. Then, we actually help them.
