All four HEAR Classes were grateful to receive another care package sent by our HEAR Enrichment Committee last week. With over 60 students in our HEAR Scholarship Program at universities throughout the United States, it is a lot of work for these ladies, and our scholars truly appreciate the effort that goes into sending the packages.

This initiative is the brainchild of Mary Sue Smith who, along with a group of friends who are also HEAR Supporters, sends snacks and other goodies to our scholars. This semester’s package included sachets of cocoa powder, popcorn, nuts, bars, pens and socks among other items. Some of our HEAR Scholars don’t receive mail from home, so these are especially welcomed by them. It reinforces the promise that the HEAR Foundation makes to our scholars; that we are more than just a scholarship check, we are an extension of their family.

“I just received my care package and it really made my day. I just wanted to say thank you to you and the rest of the HEAR family for your continuous support!” Aniyah T, HEAR Class of 2022

“I wanted to take the time to say thank you for the car packages that the HEAR Foundation has been sending me. I very much appreciate the gesture, and you keep a hungry college student happy.” Jason R, HEAR Class of 2021.
