DSST COVID Family Relief Fund

SUPPORT THE DSST COMMUNITY DURING THE COVID-19 CRISIS

These are difficult and challenging days for all of us. At DSST, we see firsthand the struggles our families are facing. Even under the best of circumstances, many find it difficult to have enough resources to support themselves, much less when they are besieged by a pandemic. 

What’s more, we are all aware that hunger has a serious impact on a student’s ability to succeed. To that end, we have established the “DSST COVID Family Relief Fund." Our goal is to raise $50,000 to assist with food and other critical needs that families are facing right now. Members of our Board of Directors have come together and raised the first $25,000 and, in turn, are challenging our donor community to match their gifts to raise an additional $25,000, bringing us to that $50,000 total.  The primary purpose of the fund will be to provide food to the most vulnerable in our DSST family, but some funds will also be reserved to provide other forms of assistance such as rent, utilities and household essentials.

Our recent partnership with the Denver Metro Emergency Food Network (DMEFN) will deliver nutritious and affordable meals to our students, families and staff members in need. DMEFN has agreed to scale their efforts to serve a large number of our students, their families and DSST staff members in need. The cost per meal is just $4.50 which includes delivery.
