Selkirk College has surpassed its COVID-19 student relief campaign goal with flying colours.
That’s almost $15,000 over the fundraising goal that was set last month by the college.
On May 5, the college announced that it would be increasing the campaign goal amount to $80,000 and would be matching donations dollar-for-dollar for the day only.
The Selkirk College Student’s Union has made a donation of over $17,000 to assist in the campaign so far.
Students at the college haven’t been able to attend in-person classes since mid-March after they were suspended due to the crisis.
Students have been using an online delivery model to help finish off their classes for the semester.
