Bellingham Technical College offers alternative to students in need of financial aid as negotiations continue with the striking unions.

Spokeswoman Marni Saling Mayer says BTC and BTC Foundation have set up an emergency fund for students who don’t get their financial aid until classes start back up again.

They are also putting together letters upon request for students to give to landlords to explain their money situation if need be.

Students who need the financial aid grant money must call and get in today to have money in time for the weekend.
