The Daily News is extending this year’s Students in Need fund drive for two weeks, to May 14.
The Daily News’ drive to raise money to assist students at Lower Columbia College has reached about $20,000, about $30,000 short of its goal. One reason for extending the drive is that our online donation tool has malfunctioned frequently since the drive began on March 17.
The newspaper donates every penny it raises to the LCC Foundation, which will use it for its Student Success Fund. The fund makes grants to students to help pay personal expenses to help them stay in school.
Donating is simple. Fill out the accompanying coupon and mail a check to the newspaper or go to TDN.com/students and click on the Students in Need donate button in the body of the story.
