COLLEGE STUDENTS APARTMENT FUND
Organized by: Jesus Zarate
Hello, my name is Jesus and I currently share an apartment with my cousin. We are both from the Bay Area and we currently attend Sacramento State University. This is our first year attending college so we are barely getting used to living alone. When we first moved out to Sacramento we were sharing an aparment with 4 other friends. We would split the rent and buy food for the apartment for everyone to eat. One of our friends due to financial situations at school wasnt able to afford to live out here in Sacramento anymore. About a month later our other 3 friends decided to quit college and leave back home without telling us. They said they were visitng their family over the weekend but that weekend turned into 2 weeks. Me and my cousin were stuck with the rent and bills and has been like that ever since. We are full time students so we dont have jobs. We have had family support to help us pay for rent,bills and food. The money we receieve from financial aid is barely enough to cover our tuition and pay for books. We dont really have anything but a set of really old couches a tv without cable and a bed. We dont have money to be able to buy any type of furniture, dinning table or even beds for our rooms. We are trying to raise money to make our apartment more accomodating since we dont have the funds to do it ourselves. We are trying to be able to raise enough money before we go into our summer vacation. We would be really thankful for anyone who can help us out so we wont have to stress out on our first year of college so much.
