In early April 2023, Rise Above will be sending out 250+ College Care Packages to young adults who grew up in foster care and who are continuing their education beyond high school. Using the Pakachoag Center's space on April 1, each care package will be filled with study snacks, hygiene and school supplies, and gift cards and shipped off to the recipient.
Rise Above is accepting donations of snacks, gift cards and other dorm goodies to add to the each package, through March 26th.
How can you help? Consider holding a drive with your friends or community group or organize a collection at your workplace. Monetary donations are also always needed.
For more information please see the Rise Above website.
