Lafayette-Helping Hands Fund
The Helping Hands Fund
The Helping Hands fund serves as emergency aid for student retention.
According to research $300 can be quite a barrier, one that could prevent a student from fulfilling their degree. That $300 could be comprised of various obstacles and the Helping Hands Fund is designed to remove those obstacles to help students finish their education.
Common Barriers to Obtaining an Education:
- Transportation-having to choose between gas for school or feeding their child.
- Hunger-Even if the student receives food assistance it is often not enough to feed their family.
- Necessary School Supplies-Some items like calculators and books can be costly. A n issue that students have run into is being able to get to class but can not afford the book or necessary supplies.
We would appreciate any gift, large or small! All donations go directly to the Helping Hands Emergency Fund and are tax deductible.
