College creates fund for students amid COVID-19 outbreak
The Clackamas Community College Foundation is striving to raise $200,000 for students and programs impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
Money from the school's COVID-19 Relief Fund will go toward providing internet connections, computers, tuition and fees and classroom materials to ensure that education is accessible to all of the college's students.
During the pandemic, Clackamas Community College is providing both essential services and online learning.
"Our students are parents who now don't have child care or their school-aged children are home. They work in the service industry and are being laid off from their jobs. They live in rural areas with either no or poor internet service. Higher education is the way out and up for our students, but they need some resources to be successful," said John Chang, CCC Foundation executive director. Please consider giving to CCC's COVID-19 Relief Fund to ensure our students can start, continue and complete their educational goals."
