“When I was growing up, I didn’t have the stable resources I needed – not even a bed. So when I got into UCLA, Project Dorm Room was the best way to start off the school year! Project Dorm Room was so well thought out. I didn’t have to worry about forgetting anything. They gave us anything we might need. It made me feel so valued and appreciated to have something that I would never be able to get on my own.”
This year, you can make it possible for 200 foster youth, just like Holdyn, to move into their dorms with all the essentials they need. It only takes $25 to provide a school supply kit and $500 to outfit an entire dorm room. (sheets, comforter, pillow, towels, hamper, detergent – the works!) You can make an impact in three simple steps:
1. Visit the Project Dorm Room page.
2. Choose the level at which you’d like to sponsor a student.
3. Complete the donation form and select “donate now”.
And, you’re done! We’ll take care of the rest!
