I'm enrolled at Colorado Technical University and they were recently allocated a bunch of money to help students cover expenses during covid19. Unfortunately the money is only for on campus students displaced and having to switch to online classes.

Is that fair? I'm an online student and am having a lot of hardships myself. Can I do anything about this?

I can understand your problem. However, in order to find out if you can receive any type of help you need to take this up with the school administration. They do have rules to follow and the money was given to them for specific causes in helping students displace off of campus when the campus was closed. I would try writing to the school and asking them for some financial assistance to see if they can allocate a bit of them funds for you. I am not sure this one is possible because they need to account for all the finds they give out to students and it appears you do not qualify for these funds.

I live in the state of Massachusetts. I am a Senior Citizen and am 65 years old. Yesterday, I got a call from the Senior Center in the town I live in. They confirmed who they were talking to with asking me my address, phone #and age. They then said to me that because I am a Senior, I qualify for a shopper to do my food shopping and I will automatically get a $100.00 food voucher.

I was shocked in disbelief. I already have a helper who does my shopping and picks up my prescriptions 2 days a week. They said just have her come to the Senior Center and pick up the food voucher and then do my food shopping! I asked if this was just our town? She said it was Nationwide!

So, please if you are a Senior, call your town's Senior Center, and ask about this $100 dollar food voucher? It was a wonderful help for me! Then today, my doorbell rang, it was the Salvation Army with 2 bags of dry groceries. He said he was delivering to all Seniors!

I was really surprised and taken by all this goodness! I am, in turn, cooking and have been for weeks now for 4 families in my neighborhood who have lost their jobs and have children! God is good! I just felt this news should be shared!

Best of luck to all! Stay safe and healthy!

Other companies had also helped donate shoes, but looks like the program has ended:

- Keen
- Allbirds

During these hard times, some companies are looking to see how they could help contribute. You can check out companies you love/purchase to see if they offer anything to help you out during these hard times.

Take care everyone.
