Thank YOU to ALL who support scholarships for local Alexandria students with Need. WHERE did you help send freshmen students this fall? TAKE A LOOK πŸ‘€ #TitansRising

The very same students we help send to college come from families in Alexandria that have been hardest hit by COVID-19 and COVID economics. The unique challenges of virtual learning for these families who may live near the poverty level will only serve to worsen the building crisis.

Our Fall Fund Drive is about to begin. The kids have never needed YOUR support like they do right now.

But you can give RIGHT NOW: https://alexscholarshipfund.networkforgood.com/projects/80273-scholarship-fund-of-alexandria-covid-19-emergency-appeal

Given the disproportionate impacts of COVID-19 and COVID economics on vulnerable families in Alexandria, and the need to address the reckoning on racial injustice and inequity by creating even more opportunity for Black students in Alexandria -- the need for scholarships in our community has simply never been greater.

This year we received the largest number of applications for scholarship renewals in program history. This means, importantly, that our kids ARE getting their degrees!
