2020 Star Tree Project to take online donations

Nov 20th, 2020

Jackson State Community College (JSCC) has a history of being a compassionate and trusted partner in West Tennessee, and JSCC is proud to serve the students who are part of Green Jay Nation. 2020 has been a very challenging year, and many JSCC students have experienced difficulties and economic hardship. Still, our students have remained committed to their educational goals and have worked hard to adjust to college and life in a COVID-19 world. JSCC is committed to our students' academic and personal success, so the "2020 Star Tree Project" has been modified to address the financial challenges currently facing our students.

JSCC's "2020 Star Tree Project" will bring holiday cheer by providing $75.00 checks to fifty (50) students and their families. The decision to provide checks rather than asking donors to shop for gifts was made in light of COVID-19 concerns and the economic hardships that many JSCC students are facing.

Students were selected based on the following criteria:

  • Zero EFC calculated from their FAFSA (This indicates a high level of financial need)
  • Number of credit hours earned
  • At least one dependent in the household who is younger than 12 years old
  • Full-time or part-time enrollment at JSCC during fall 2020

Gifts may be made online at or mailed to Jackson State Community College, 2046 North Parkway, Jackson, TN 38301, ATTN: Foundation. Checks should be made payable to JSCC Foundation/Student Relief-2020 Star Tree Project. Email with any questions.

We ask that donations be submitted no later than December 7, 2020.

If you would like to assist a family in another way, please email no later than December 1, 2020.
