Send a Care Package to a College Youth

We’re happy to announce that we have eight Life Launch youth who are enrolled at a local college or trade school and begin classes in mid-August. To help them start the school year on the right foot, we would like to make sure each youth gets a care package filled with the essentials.

Here are some care package ideas:

  • A note of encouragement
  • Reusable water bottle
  • Snacks/granola bars/candy/gum
  • Self-help books for young adults 
  • Gas Gift Cards to help them get to and from school
  • Fast Food Gift Cards for those late night study sessions
  • Target and/or Walgreens Gift Cards to help with school supplies and urgent needs

Below is a short bio about each college youth in our homes:
