  • “I moved into Boston College yesterday and received the amazing Freshman Fresh Start dorm packages. I just want to say thank you! I saved so much money because of this awesome scholarship. The dorm items were beyond amazing!”

    – Boston College student, class of 2020

  • “Thank you for awarding me the 15 dorm items.  College is very expensive and the dorm room is definitely a hidden expense. I am beyond grateful for the gift and thank you for supporting college students in need!”

    – SUNY Binghamton student, class of 2020

  • “The items I received are a great help and I have a feeling I’m going to go all the way with them and won’t need to worry about those supplies at least until I graduate.  Thank you for all the great things you have given me. I just want to let you know that I am grateful for all that you have done.”

    – Brandeis University, Class of 2016

  • “Thank you! You don’t know how relieved I am right now…I was very nervous. Thank you so, so much.”

    – Mother of 2015 student

  • “After experiencing homelessness, college was a fresh start. When I got to college it was kinda a slap in the face to realize that I was not prepared and had no family to help. Freshman Fresh Start stepped up when there was no one else. Thank you.”

    – 2019 New Student

  • My daughter received her dorm room supplies from your organization and I wanted to say a big THANK YOU from us!  Your generosity is unmatched and sincerely appreciated. She settled well, and her comfort was due in large part to your organization!
