After being paused last year due to COVID-19, the university’s Days of Giving are ramping up once again, as an entirely online event on April 14 and 15.
The event will focus on raising funds for key areas of need, including student scholarships, alleviating student food and housing insecurity, supporting student mental health and wellness, promoting student diversity and equity on campus and sponsoring a River Hawk student athlete. Alternately, supporters can designate a donation to a project of their choosing.
“Donations to alleviate food and housing insecurity and student scholarships are particularly important to me,” says Sarah Grainger ’21, a nursing major, Honors College student and president of the UML club track and field team. “Personally, they have helped in providing me three meals a day and a safe place to stay while I continue on my college journey at UMass Lowell.”
Participants can also help by spreading the word about how UML impacts students, challenging friends and family to contribute and sharing the link and hashtag #UMLGIVES on their social media channels.
