Spring 2022 College Care Packages


In early April we sent out 208 College Care Packages to college students who grew up in foster care. Each care package was filled with study snacks, hygiene and school supplies, and gift cards and shipped off to a young adult who is continuing their education beyond high school.

“Thank you so much for the care package. You have no idea how amazing it feels to know someone cares ! I’m beyond excited to start school” -Kathryn

How can I help? Ahead of our next batch of College Care Packages in October 2022, we’ll be accepting donations of snacks, gift cards and other dorm goodies to add to the each package. The full list of items we need is here. 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. Monetary donations are also always needed. Send gift cards to us at PO Box 174, Northbridge, MA 01534. E-gift cards can be sent to info@weriseabove.org.
