"College care packages were always an exciting gift to receive especially when I was not expecting it. Personally, it felt good to get support from someone that wasn’t my immediate family, especially because I went away for school. I was reminded that IHDF cares even through the smallest gestures.” said Ricardo Mejias, Dreamer Alum, current staff member with IHDF NY.
College Dreamer, Zekiyah, who is currently attending Brooklyn College also explained, “thank you so much to those who take the time to pack and send care packages. It means a lot more than I could ever express.”
The result was more than 200 thoughtfully boxed packages made ready to send to students who are just starting the semester. And what made this effort even more impactful was that the packages would then be sent to Dreamers nationwide. An effort that would have taken numerous hours, was accomplished in just under two hours in a fun and engaging community experience thanks to our Viacom employees.
