A Dakota State University program is raising money to help out those facing difficulties created by COVID-19.
Trojans Helping Trojans was created during the flooding in Madison in the fall of 2019. The university expanded the program this spring to meet various needs of students, faculty, and staff caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s goal is to raise 50-thousand dollars. A Giving Day earlier this month served as a kick-off for this new fundraising effort, and now the program is sponsoring a t-shirt and mask sale.
DSU Vice President for Institutional Advancement Mark Millage said that DSU Trojan masks and t-shirts are a unique yet practical way to show support for those in need. He said money raised will go to help out DSU students, faculty and staff in need of things like daily living and transportation costs, emergency and unforeseen expenses, and income loss.
A link to how to order the special t-shirts and masks can be found here. The sale is going on through May 27th and orders will ship during the week of June 15th.
There is also a donation page, active through the month of May, at dsu.edu/trojanshelpingtrojans .
