UCO International Student Relief Fund

Are you looking for a way to help someone during this pandemic right now? Perhaps you are looking for a way to use your stimulus check. I have several international students who are currently struggling to pay for rent and or groceries right now. I do have a limited number of resources, but those will soon be exhausted. Our international students are unable to pay for these things for many reasons:
1. According to the law, international students are unable to work off-campus unless they have received special permission. This permission requires students to fill out an application, be approved by the government. This application has a cost and can take as long as three months to be approved. These students don't have time to wait. They are also unable to work on campus because the campus is currently closed.
2. Many of these students come from countries where all businesses have been required to shut down. These businesses include places such as banks where parents transfer funds to their children to receive money in the United States. This also means their parents are unable to work and make any money to support their children.
3. Some countries have been closed, even to their own citizens. As a result, some of our students cannot even return home if they wanted to in order to be with their family.
I am asking you from the bottom of my heart to please help our students. Please let me know if you are willing to assist. If not, please share with others who may be able to help. Whether you are interested in donating food, gift cards for groceries, money for rent, have contacts with local people who would donate or have organizations that can help. Anything is appreciated.
