This Giving Tuesday, Help FOCRLS Address the Challenge of the Current Crisis

posted in: Events | 0

For GivingTuesday, we invite you to join FOCRLS in rising to the challenge to help meet needs that this pandemic has created for many CRLS students and their families.

Your generous contribution will help FOCRLS to:

  • Provide supermarket vouchers for CRLS students and their families facing hunger through Falcon’s Market (Use this link or see below.)
  • Provide assistance to staff and faculty working to meet student needs
  • Provide funds for scholarships for FOCRLS seniors struggling to realize their academic dreams

Because our FOCRLS community is so generous, we know that your donation will mean that FOCRLS can work to address these critical challenges for our staff, faculty, students and their families.

or make your check payable to Friends of CRLS, write “Holiday FY21 Giving Tuesday” or “Falcon’s Market” on the memo line and mail to:

Friends of CRLS
