+ What is the Student Emergency Fund?
Compassion is a hallmark of the OTC experience. The SEF exists to assist OTC students by providing financial support when they need assistance with immediate, unexpected and unavoidable emergency expenses. These circumstances could arise from job loss, accidents, illness, death of a family member, COVID-19, or a need for temporary housing. This hardship must have a direct impact on the student’s academic success at OTC. Money does not have to be repaid and the disbursement is confidential.
+ How/when will I receive my socks?
To minimize personal contact, socks will be distributed from the OTC Foundation via standard or inter-office mail. Socks will be distributed shortly after your Sock Star campaign contribution is made.
+ What size are the socks?
Socks are one-size-fits-most.
+ What if I want more than one pair of socks?
On the donation form you will have the option to give more to receive more. Want two pairs? Simply make a $60 gift. Please contact the OTC Foundation office at (417) 447-2651 if you wish to make a larger gift and receive additional socks.
+ Can I give to this campaign via phone or in-person?
You may call (417) 447-2651 or stop by the OTC Foundation office to make your donation to the Sock Star campaign. The office is located in the Information Commons building on the OTC Springfield Campus, Suite 206.
