Subaru Superstore of Chandler staff, Subaru brand ambassador volunteers, members of the AFFCF Scholarship Committee and National Charity League volunteers packed 104 care packages recently for members of the AFFCF Scholarship program and Penson Fund recipients!
Due to the support of care package sponsors such as Subaru, National Charity League, and She is Stem, Inc., these are the biggest care packages we have sent yet! The packages include a $20 Starbucks gift card, a blanket, a candle, fuzzy socks, notes of encouragement and plenty of treats and snacks!
They will be mailed ahead of final exams weeks, so students will receive them the first week of December. The care packages are being sent to students at:
- Arizona State University
- Central Arizona College
- Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
- Grand Canyon University
- Howard University
- Maricopa Community Colleges
- Missouri State University – West Plains
- New Mexico State University
- Northern Arizona University
- Pima Community College
- University of Arizona
- University of California – San Diego
- University of Denver
One of the care packages was sent abroad to a NAU student studying in France!
Support Our Scholars
Without the scholarship, young adults who aged out of foster care might not have the means to pursue their educational dreams and create better futures for themselves. You can support these young men and women by making a foster care tax credit donation to Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation. Even better, you can receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on your Arizona state taxes, up to $500 for individuals and up to $1,000 for couples. Please consider a donation today!
