Send A Care Package To Our Children In College It Makes A Difference
We are excited about helping with Grandmothers Who Help. Mykayia Robinson, Secretary, Ganiah Hinton Photographer
Grandmothers Who Help will be sending care packages to college students in need. We spoke with several college students, who were able to attend college through, community and state wide organizations. However these organizations only cover tuition. We are reaching out to college students, especially freshmen being away from home, stepping out on faith for the first time. We recognize the need to help parents from low income families send care packages to their children. We are requesting from our selected students a list of items that they are in need of. (tooth paste, deodorant, socks, thumb drives, a new pillow case and sheet, side table lamps etc.). We believe if we can supplement some of the much needed nonperishable items, this could free up some change, to purchase heather food items. We will send suggestion on healthier eating "Cheat Sheets". It is up to them to choose what they eat. For us we want children to feel special and give them another reason to stand firm in their commitment to graduate college. The bottom line is we understand how expensive college is, how frightening it may be for a student being away from home, maybe for the first time living in student housing. We will send the package from the name of parents or guardians, as well as from Grandmothers Who Help. Some parents may not be financial able or even understand the importance of their child receiving a care package from home; this package can be a contributing factor that keeps children in school. As Grandmothers Who Help, we have to pass down to our children parenting skills. For those parents who have the skills but lack the finances we want to help them keep their children in college, every little bit helps. We want to unite community organizations, business, and corporations to help build our communities through supporting college education. Pass Down our history. Children in college are receptive and open to learn - Teach them whild they are ready.
