We Need Your Help!

The College and Room Essentials (C.A.R.E.) Initiative affords us the opportunity to provide students with pre-assembled care packages that include school supplies, bedding, toiletries and other miscellaneous items. These basic essentials help millennials comfortably transition into college and vocational programs and prepare to be successful in the classroom.

Since 2015 we have give 73 care packages to students with household incomes of $45,000 or less. Each recipient transitioned into a New York State, out-of-state college or trade school.

What is the goal of the C.A.R.E. Initiative?
To remove the economic stress and barriers associated with purchasing essential college and dorm items.

Why the C.A.R.E. Initiative?
Our experience has shown that no matter what stage millennials are in their lives, they experience obstacles and hurdles that may create barriers to their success. Some millennials struggle with purchasing college and room essentials. In addition, students respond to society’s call to take action by pursuing higher education that will provide them with credentials to pursue meaningful careers. They are accepted into college and vocational programs then meet the challenge of purchasing the basic necessities they need to be successful in the classroom and feel comfortable in the learning and/or living environment.

WE are here to help alleviate the struggle and support their transition!

We invite you to join us by donating the following supplies:
3 subject notebooks
1″ inch binders
Mechanical pencils
Pens
Highlighters
