Send a Care Package to your student!

The Care Package program is a great way for parents and families to share their love and support all year long. A care package is the best way to remind your student that Mom and Day are thinking of them on a birthday, holiday and during final exams. A care package says it all.

Each of our care packages are loaded with all of your student's favorite snacks, including fresh baked cakes and cookies, fresh fruit, candy bars and more! The best part is that you can include your own personal note to your student in every package. Don't just show them how much you care, tell them!

Send a care package today!
