THANK YOU for making Giving Tuesday a success!


Thank you for supporting LRC's GED Students on Giving Tuesday
 
Thank you for your donations, support, and interactions on Giving Tuesday! Our community rallied to raise more than $4,000 to support students who are working hard to earn their GEDs. Wendell Powell, who started the GED program, said, “Each student in this program has a drive within them. They just need a chance to light that fire.” You gave them that chance!
 
You did more than donate to a scholarship fund. You gave money directly to students who are working hard to balance their jobs and families while they earn their GED.
 
There are few things as beautiful as watching our community rally around students who are working hard to advance their education. Thank you for supporting them.
 
Keep an eye out for another update about what you helped achieve on Giving Tuesday. In the meantime, the Learning Resource Center staff will be busy celebrating you and your generosity.
 
Happy holidays from the LRC team!
 
If you didn’t have a chance to donate to our GED program, it’s not too late—you can still make a gift! For the rest of December, we’re focused on supporting adult students who are working toward a degree that will open new doors and allow new opportunities.

Give the gift of education this holiday season; click to donate!
