My name is Jeremy. I have received a grant that is funded by your donation. I am a junior in college and I appreciate your help. I wish to thank you in person and tell you what your assistance means to me. My family is having a rough time affording things and I have picked up hours at work on top of the many hours of studying at night. I am very thankful to know there are people nice enough to help those in need like you are doing for me and giving me the opportunity to fulfill a dream. Without you helping me, this dream will always be out of my grasp. I will strive to make all the assistance I receive count and graduate to become an educator to make amends for what everyone has done for me. I appreciate everybody’s support. I wish that you will acknowledge my appreciation and that everything goes well for you and your family in the present and in the future.

We were struggling to make my next payment and I thought I was going to have to transfer to a different school. But thanks to this grant, I will now be able to stay at Oakland City University. Once again, thank you very much!
