In April, 200+ College Care Packages will be packed up and shipped out to college students who grew up in foster care. Each care package will be filled to the brim with dorm snacks, hygiene and school supplies, and gift cards.
Want to help? Now through March 31st we’re accepting donations snacks, gift cards and other dorm goodies to add to our spring edition of 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.
