Since summer 2020, the GVSU Laker Store has been donating proceeds from the sale of masks to the Student Support Fund. To date, $8,861.90 has been donated to the fund.

The Student Support Fund, administered by Financial Aid, provides funding to GVSU students who face extreme financial circumstances from situations like accidents, illness, loss of employment, loss of other income or support, or death of a family member. 

Tony Glaab, manager of the Allendale Laker Store, said during the past year, the GVSU Laker Store sold masks to meet customer demand and help keep faculty, staff,  students and their families safe both on and off campus. 

“We’re thrilled to have donated almost $9,000 to the Student Relief Fund from the proceeds of those sales,” he said.

Glaab said some of the most popular selections included black masks with a GVSU logo, gray masks with the Athletics GV in blue on, and tie-dyed masks.
