Students in Need, The Daily News’ drive to raise money to assist students at Lower Columbia College, has reached $16,396.
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.
This year’s goal is to raise $50,000.
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.
The coupon will appear in the paper daily until the drive ends April 30.
The latest donations:

$200: Mary Wingate in memory of Marge Ofstun.
$100: Shelley Palodichuk; and Larry and Connie Wilhelmsen in memory of Harriet Van Buren.
$30: Pamela Potwin.
