NYFC staffers worked hard to assemble last semester’s round of Back-to-School Packages for college-enrolled youth in foster care. The packages included essential items like laptop computers, printers, bedding, and backpacks, as well as supplies like notebooks, USB drives, pens, and memo pads. Each student will receive a follow-up package for the spring semester. NYFC has already received numerous letters from the grateful recipients of the Back-to-School Packages. Here are a few of their messages:
“Thank you so much for the Back-to-School Package. It brought tears to my eyes to know that there are still caring individuals in the world.”
“I felt like a little girl opening her presents on Christmas Eve. Thank you for bringing me hope. I will not let you down.”
“Thank you so much for the gift package. I will make the best use of everything…especially the alarm clock!”
Special thanks to all of the supporters of the Back-to-School Package program!
