Continuing in the holiday tradition of fellowship and fun for a vital cause, the leadership committee has chosen this year to support the COVID-19 Student Impact Fund at the Alamo Colleges District. Your gift will provide emergency resources for students at any of the five Alamo Colleges who need temporary assistance to:

  • Buy groceries
  • Pay rent or utility bills
  • Access technology needed to support remote learning
  • Pay healthcare expenses
  • Make up for lost wages

For many students, making ends meet while balancing classes, jobs and family can be overwhelming at the best of times. Prior to the pandemic, many students were already struggling with food and housing insecurity and financial instability. The COVID-19 crisis adds new burdens and directly impacts students’ ability to remain in college. 100% of your gift will go directly to students and will help them keep learning and working towards their certificate or degree.

Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of this special opportunity to make a difference in the lives of students in our community. We look forward to seeing you at the 13th Annual Fabulous GED Brunch. We look forward to seeing you virtually this December and can’t wait for us all to be together in person again in 2021!
