We provide them with a cellphone and service, school supplies, books, bus/trolley passes and other financial needs throughout the year. When the students move into dorms or apartments, we take them shopping for bedding, towels and other necessities. Our generous sponsor, REAL DEAL MATTRESS, provides new beds. We also send Care Packages to our out of town students.
