Emergency funding

Hello! My name is Emerald and I’m in dire need of help. This is my last semester here in Mount Holyoke and I need help financially to pay for upcoming expenses, necessities, and medication. Like many others, I come from a first generation, low income family. Most of my family cut me and for the longest I’ve been surviving on my own. As I start this semester I will be in need of supplies and help with bill payment. Due to COVID, our school laid off many student workers. There’s barely any work to apply for locally. Most of my expenses came from the help of friends but I feel just as terrible asking for their help and now asking for your help. I still continuing to look for work before the semester starts. I just need help getting by and saving up for graduation. If you can help in any way, please donate whatever you can. If you’re unable to, a share would be very much appreciated. Thank you time and patience for reading this!
