In the coming weeks and months, students in flood-ravaged communities in Eastern Kentucky will face significant challenges as they return to the classroom.
To help overcome these barriers, SOAR has created the Eastern Kentucky Student Support Fund. 100% of donations will go directly towards filling student needs.
SOAR is a 501(C)(3) organization, so all donations are tax-deductible. A donation receipt will be provided upon completion.
Long-term assistance for students
Once immediate crisis and cleanup needs are met, important secondary gaps will arise that will impact a student’s ability to succeed in the classroom.
Low-income students faced significant hurdles during the COVID-19 pandemic. Without targeted assistance, these students could fall further behind as a result of damage to schools and homes caused by floods.
Working directly with school districts and family resource centers, the Eastern Kentucky Student Support Fund will support improved living conditions and student needs such as:
- School supplies
- Household appliances
- Rental assistance
- Gas cards for transportation to and from school
- Other needs as they arise and are communicated by school districts
Who is eligible for the Eastern Kentucky Student Relief Fund?
Students eligible for the Student Relief Fund must:
- Attend a K-12 school in a county in a FEMA-declared disaster area
- Apply for assistance through school districts and family resource centers
