New face coverings for sale through a former UCF student’s apparel company do more than just help curtail the spread of the coronavirus – some of the proceeds also help students in need.
Rock ’Em, an apparel company started in 2011 by UCF student Rob Starkman, recently released several UCF-themed designs for the Armor Up, Knights fundraiser. The face coverings are made of three layers of cotton polyester.
There are 12 styles to choose from. For each face covering sold, $5 will go to the UCF Student Emergency Fund. If you buy one of the special three-pack collections, $15 will be donated to the fund.
The fund helps students facing hardship or obstacles that make it difficult to continue their education at UCF. Selected students are based on merit and financial need to help with the costs of tuition, textbooks, fees and other expenses related to education.
The new face coverings are officially licensed, designed by the UCF Marketing team and available at Rock ’Em in Orlando, where they are manufactured and the company is based.
