Our services are free but there are some unexpected costs that our students might face. For these expenses, we have created the student Emergency & Scholarship Fund. Launched during our 2016 #GivingTuesday campaign, the Emergency & Scholarship Fund has been awarded to over 10 students, actually surpassing our previous fundraising goal of $1,000.
This year MEOC would like your help on this #GivingTuesday (November 28, 2017) in raising $2,000 in scholarship funds to keep our students striving towards their goals.
$50: helps with the first bi-weekly commute to a new job or to school
$100: assists with the purchase of work clothes or school supplies
$150: offsets the average cost of books per semester or a month of transportation
