LA CROSSE, Wis., March 27, 2020 – In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Western Technical College Foundation launched a fundraiser this week for the College’s emergency fund for students in need of financial support during this time.
The Foundation is seeking donations for the College’s emergency fund, which provides support for students in unexpected financial hardship. These expenses could include dependent care, gas, medical expenses, utilities, vehicle repairs, food, and housing for students who qualify.
“Western students are facing incredible challenges as they work to complete their education in this unprecedented time,” said Mike Swenson, executive director of the Western Foundation. “Now, more than ever, our students need assistance from our community.”
