Many of us may remember saving on grocery expenses in November by visiting extended family and sharing expenses, but that may not be possible for students who remain separated from their family to keep them safe. A gift at this level could keep a student from going without basic needs this November.
Personal hygiene kits at the PolyPantry included items like toiletries, feminine hygiene products, bath soap, and shampoo. These kits cost us about $10 to assemble. So a gift at this level could provide such items to 20 students!
We can see the light at the end of the tunnel, but the health and economic effects of COVID-19 are likely spill into next semester and beyond. A gift at this level makes sure 3 students have everything they need from start to finish this Spring Semester.
