This fall we’ll be sending out College Care Packages to youth in foster care who are defying the odds by attending college. Each care package will be filled to the brim with dorm snacks, hygiene and school supplies, and gift cards and shipped off to a student.
Supplies needed! Now through October 25th we’re accepting donations snacks, gift cards and other dorm goodies to add to our college care packages. The full list of items we need is here, or you can shop our Amazon Wish List. Consider holding a drive with your friends or community group or organize a collection at your workplace. Email us to arrange a drop-off or pick-up.
If you know a Massachusetts youth in foster care who has obtained their high school diploma or equivalent and is continuing their education in any way (including vocational programs and 2- or 4-year degree programs), click here for details and to sign them up to receive a care package.
