Emergency Relief for UNF Students

We are all feeling the effects of the COVID-19 situation and its impact on our daily lives. In these unique times, it’s vitally important that we take care of ourselves and one another.

UNF has taken proactive measures to ensure the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff, including transitioning to remote instruction for students through the Spring semester and temporarily transitioning to remote work for employees. Many of our students have returned home to finish the semester safely with their families. However, the COVID-19 situation may have additional effects, as some of our students are now facing unexpected financial hardship and other unfortunate circumstances related to food, employment, housing and concern for their personal and emotional well-being. We are working hard to bring together resources for those students in greatest need.

This is your chance to help.

By giving to any of the funds below, you can directly support critical areas of need for UNF students. Your gift will make an immediate impact on those hit hardest by COVID-19.

Thank you from the entire UNF family.

Lend-A-Wing Pantry is designed to combat food insecurity, and they’re here to help students who may be struggling during this challenging time. Lend-A-Wing recently set up a “grab bag” pick-up where a LAW employee will bring a bag out to students (in support of social distancing). Overall, Lend-A-Wing strives to create a safe and comfortable environment where students can request food anonymously. Your support could be crucial for a student in need.
