The Final Day!

December 05, 2016

Today is the final day of our project. Thank you to everyone who has helped us get this far. Every dollar given to this fund will go to ease the transition for veteran students, help keep these students on track to graduation and help make the dream of a college degree a reality. We couldn't haven't gotten this far without the support of our donors.

 

We are still $3,320 short of our goal. Please help us finish this project, help us spread the word.

 

Thank you for all you have done and GO POKES!
