Sinclair partners with Miami Valley Meals to provide meals to students in need
“We are grateful for the tremendous community support that has enabled our talented team of chefs to provide this important service to nonprofits in the Dayton area,” said Amanda DeLotelle, executive director of Miami Valley Meals.
Sinclair has provided more than $16.5 million in federal COVID-19 relief funds to support students with food, housing, course materials, technology, health care and childcare, according to the college. Another $8.5 million will be distributed to students in the spring semester.
Sinclair students are entitled to free counseling services, a mobile food and health clinic, financial counseling, legal counsel, and medical advocacy.
Sinclair Community College also hired a licensed full-time social worker to connect students with resources. Over the past semester, more than 380 students have received social work/case management assistance, according to the college.
“With the addition of a licensed social worker and many other enhanced student services, Sinclair Community College advances our mission to recognize needs and strive to meet them,” added Alicia Schroeder, director of student affairs. “Our students continue to face tremendous challenges as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic, but our holistic approach to services and support from community partners allows our students to continue on their path to success.”
