Grateful for Your Support
Your generous support has provided resources for the most urgent COVID-19 needs and has made a significant impact for our front-line health care workers, our students and the patients we serve.
$62,575 for materials to produce PPE
The West Texas 3D COVID-19 Relief Consortium has provided more than 16,000 PPE to more than 225 facilities across to meet the immediate needs of health care workers in the region.
Learn more about how the consortium came together in this interview with Simon Williams, Ph.D., associate dean for Academic Affairs in the School of Medicine.
What Dean Sacco (TTU School of Engineering) and I realized was that there were a lot
of other things already going on. We had students with the TTU Honors College making
face shields and TTU and TTUHSC had teams of students coordinating to volunteer. We
thought, 'We can actually put something together that brings together all these grassroots
efforts and make something that is even better.' What it became was a true, across
West Texas, community effort.

Students received financial assistance through private funding and gifts to Our Legacy Now Student Foundation.
I want to pursue a career in intensive care, and during this pandemic, I’ve learned
that now more than ever I want to be on the front lines advocating, serving and working
for those in need. With this generous gift, I’m able to lay aside some financial burdens
and focus solely on my education, so I can obtain my dream career and start helping
others as you have helped me.
