In anticipation of our fall semester final exams, the Student Alumni Council (SAC), in conjunction with the Office of Development and Alumni Relations, offers you the opportunity to send your student a finals care package.

Each care package is $30. A list of sample items may be found at this link: http://sac.sites.grinnell.edu/calendar/care-packages. If your student has food allergies, we will be able to replace it with a suitable alternative.

We also ask you to consider ordering an additional package for a student who might need a “pick-me-up” during finals week. Last fall, 116 students benefited from others’ acts of kindness. We work with offices across campus to identify students who will benefit from a kindness care package. With your support, we can continue offering this important program to our students. 

Your student(s) will be notified via campus mail and email that they have received a care package and will be able to collect it on either Wednesday, Dec. 11 or Thursday, Dec. 12. If your student does not pick up their package on either day, or make alternative pick-up arrangements with us, we will donate their care package to Student Health and Counseling Services (SHACs) to hand out to students in need of a “pick-me-up.”

Once you complete the order for a care package, you will given a link to an online form to send a personalized message to your care package recipient.

Orders placed after Nov. 13 will incur a $10 late fee. Final care package orders are due Nov. 20.
