College Students Care Package

 

While college is a time for students to venture out into a new stage of their lives and begin making decisions for themselves, that doesn’t mean they must leave their past behind.

Funded by the parents of the college student, these boxes travel all over the country to students who have belonged to TBE, and include items specific to each holiday. For example, on Hanukkah, a gift card or a bag of chocolate gelt may be included, and on Rosh Hashanah, apples and honey to remind the students of our tradition. Most of the packages include food for each holiday that may be difficult for students to find on their own in college. They also include TBE’s touches of thoughtfulness and care.

In addition to reminding the students of their synagogue and faith, the packages are designed to offer reassurance that people back home care about them.

TBE wants students to know that just because they’re gone, their TBE family is still thinking about them.
