The COVID-19 pandemic has left many students facing mounting financial pressures and difficulties in providing for their everyday essentials. Through the Adopt a Student program, you can help support them to meet their most basic needs and ultimately obtain their education.
Food is one of the most basic needs that most of us are able to take for granted. Unfortunately, one in seven Canadians are food insecure, and many students trade off adequate nutrition to meet their tuition costs (StatCan, 2020). Without proper nutrition, brain and body function is severely compromised - impacting their education.
Besides tuition, university also comes with the price of textbooks and school supplies. Now, the expensive cost of a laptop has also become a necessary function of an online education.
To cover some of these mounting costs, many students hold part-time jobs, adding the price of a bus or subway ride. Some must even forego public transportation and make a long walk or bike commute, reducing time spent studying.
Your kind donation will cover 3 meals, help cover the cost of educational supplies, and provide a means of transportation. This donation will go directly to a student with demonstrated financial need and provide the means to continue pursuing their education and dreams.
Every $1 counts - Please make a difference today
We need partners to help make a greater impact - Your donation will cover 6 meals to feed each student for a least two days, help cover the cost of educational supplies such as textbooks, and provide them with a means of transportation.
