Local non-profit supplying students with basic necessities before college
GOSHEN, Ind. -- Helping the future of tomorrow!
‘Community Assisting and Rewarding Education University’ known as C.A.R.E is hosting a ‘send-off’ event where they will be providing basic living necessities to students attending college.
They have been providing basic living necessities like students since 2016 and have helped over 100 students so far each semester twice a year.
And, it’s not only about the supplies.
The students are assigned to a mentor throughout the years of college where the mentor does rountely check ups, takes them to lunch, and etc.
The CEO and founder of the local non-profit Danielle Neal says she felt the need to help high school graduates in the right direction while also providing some financial relief to families' budgets.
She says attending any college is expensive and stressful so being able to help supply basic essentials is a huge help.
She has gathered a number of mentors from the community who volunteer to help their one assigned student.
Shannon Warfield, who is a parent of four who all have gone through C.A.R.E says she’s blessed to have a program like this in the community and a founder who cares so much like Neal.
