Send a Care Package

A Catawba Tradition of Over 50 Years


The end of the semester is in sight and the stress of papers, presentations, and finals is spreading across campus.

What would help? A Care package from you!

The members of the Catawba College Psychology Club take orders for, assemble, and deliver the packages to students just as they begin studying in earnest for their finals.  The packages include several items, including “comfort food” and edibles of all sorts— but the most important part is a note of encouragement from you.

The packages are delivered to the dorm room at the start of finals; if no one is in to receive the package, it is given to the Resident Assistant (RA). Commuter students will be alerted by email and a note in their mailbox that their package awaits in the mailroom.

Benefits of "CARE-ing"

The Psychology Club uses CARE packages as its main tool of fundraising.  The monies raised are used to defray costs for members’ trip to the annual Southeastern Psychological Association conference, where club members present their research, meet other psychologists and psychology students, and are interviewed for graduate school.  Most of the items in the package are purchased locally, so that they may support local businesses that have been instrumental in helping the College and its students. Thank you for your support!

Care packages can be sent to any student who might not otherwise receive a CARE package. Just enter the number of additional total care packages you'd like to purchase for the "Boost a Student" program. Thank you for your generosity!
