Order a CARE Package

snacks.jpgAlthough it seems like it was just yesterday that you delivered your student to Catawba's campus to start the semester, the end of the semester is now in sight! Therefore, we want to tell you about a Catawba tradition of 50 years: study day CARE packages.

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" edibles of all sorts — but the most important part is a note of encouragement from you.


The packages are delivered to the dorm room; in the case that no one is in to receive the package, it is given to the RA. Commuter students will be alerted via note in their boxes 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. All 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!

Adopt a Student!

We are often asked if other students can be adopted. The answer is YES! Anyone can send a package to a student who might not otherwise receive a CARE package. Just enter "Student in Need" in the field where a student's name would be entered. Thank you for your generosity!


CARE packages cost just $15 and you may order them below. If you have questions please e-mail using CARE in the subject line.
