Roadrunners Helping Roadrunners
The Student Emergency Fund was created in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey to provide limited grants to students who were in need due to an emergency. Whether it’s repairing damages from natural disasters, medical bills or general unforeseen emergencies, our goal is to cover some of those expenses students cannot handle on their own.
In 2021, the Student Emergency Fund gave out more than $60,000 in emergency grants to 189 students in need.
"Daily life for my family has been strenuous and stressful. We are living in fear, and our world is tense. Schools are closed, and my children are home. With the added expense of costs of meals, my family was struggling, and I landed myself in the ER from all the stress. The Roadrunner Student Alumni Association/Student Emergency Fund committee has generously helped ease the strain that this situation has caused, for food and prescriptions. I will forever be grateful for their generosity..."
