TRU establishes Disaster Relief Fund for students

September 10, 2021
Thompson Rivers University has announced that it is establishing a fund that will help students facing hardship due to climate-related disasters. The Disaster Relief Fund was inspired by TRU Distinguished Alumnus Kevin Loring and TRU honorary doctorate holder Lori Marchand, who were concerned about Lytton students who had been displaced by the wildfire. The fund will provide students who have been displaced with safe housing and tuition help. This year, the initiative is supporting Alexis Aleck-Brown, who is a Lytton evacuee and a first-year TRU mechanical trades student. CFJC Today (BC)
