The Arkansas Tech family came together Oct. 8-11 to raise money for assisting students in need.

Arkansas Tech held Signature Weekend of Giving during homecoming festivities. The money donated by the community will be used as an emergency fund for current Tech students in need of finical assistance.
When the event began on Oct. 8, an anonymous donor pledged a $10,000 donation. After the donation, the goal was to raise $10,000 more by Oct. 11 at 11:59 p.m.

The goal was exceeded when more than 265 members of the Tech family donated $29,446.15 for the Fight On Fund. The total amount raised was $31,238.60.

Funds may still be provided to the Fight On Fund by visiting www.atu.edu/signaturegift or calling (479) 356-2071.
