It’s hard to dream when you have to focus on survival.

It’s hard to dream when you have to continue showing up at a minimum wage job, putting yourself and your family at risk, because you can’t afford not to.

It’s hard to dream when you are burning through your savings because you need to pay bills, buy food or support your family.

It’s hard to dream when you have no idea whether or not you’ll be able to afford your textbooks for your first year of College or University.

It’s hard to dream when you have to focus on survival.

For high school students planning to attend College or University, the economic disruption caused by COVID-19 carries real fear for what the future may hold, especially for those already living below the poverty line.

And even though we may be unsure of what the future holds, we want to remind the young people in our community to #keepdreaming

Join the Southdale Education Fund and donate to support students who are dreaming of their futures.

Because we understand that everyone is facing challenges, we are only asking for donations of $5, $10 or $15. We hope that you will give what you can.

Support Your Community During #COVID19
