Fall College Care Packages
In November, 268 College Care Packages were packed up and shipped out to college students who grew up in foster care. Each care package was filled to the brim with study snacks, hygiene and school supplies, and gift cards.
Here are just a few of the notes we’ve received from youth recipients:
“I just want to thank Rise Above for every care package that was sent out. You truly are a blessing. These care packages are amazing and I am beyond thankful for your support. It has been a rough semester for me. I really needed this.” -D., nursing student, UMass Dartmouth
“I have just received my package and it put a HUGE smile on my face! Thank you all so much.
I appreciate it so much.” – A., Health Services Management, UNC Charlotte
“THANK YOU so much for the Rise Above the mystery box . I call that because every year I am just blown away with what you guy’s send me . I am grateful for the things you send and they are very helpful. It is the highlight of my day when my package comes.” -D., radiology student, Bristol Community College
