Lazer Response Fund

 

Right now, our students need us more than ever. In order to combat COVID-19 induced struggles, we need your help.
 
The COVID-19 pandemic brought to the forefront the need for OCC students to have access to technology like laptops and wireless access for distance learning. As we navigate this virus, we know that the challenges students face, from food insecurity and technology to tuition aid, will not diminish. The Lazer Response Fund was established to address life challenges that prevent OCC students from academic success and graduation. Your gift will continue to help students now and, in the future, to get through college with the resources they need to be successful.

Real-Time Effect

We'd like to thank the students who reached out to the Community Care Hub to talk about how this affected their lives for the better. 

"The laptop not only helped me to continue my schoolwork but allowed me to assist my children as well during this pandemic. Thank you!"

"Oh my gosh, I really appreciate the donor help, because I have four kids and we were fighting over one laptop, and I had to be awake all night to just have time to do my own homework because the kids have so much to do too. Thank you so much for your help and support 🙏"

"I would say, without your generous donation, I would not have been able to finish this semester. Thank you."

"I would love to thank the donors from the bottom of my heart. I was able to continue my education, which helps my three children ( ages 1,2 and 3) and I. - Thank you, and God bless."

"I’m very grateful to them for their help and support during this difficult time. Students like me are not able to continue their distance learning without their help. Thank you for your kindness."
