COVID-19 Student Hope Campaign

Paul Herman is working to become a heavy-duty mechanic.

Thank you for your support

While funds from our generous donors support approximately 500 students per year, every year up to 200 students in need do not receive assistance due to lack of available funds. That number is rising because of COVID-19.

Your donation will help build a skilled, knowledgeable, educated workforce, which is essential to economic recovery.
