Support for College Students In Need

Research shows that an estimated 56,000 students are currently homeless. With the rising cost of college tuition, and books, students are sometimes left in need. On My Mother’s Shoulders campus initiative is to start toiletry pantries so that students will be able to receive basic toiletry items. To date they are on 12 campuses and have donated 66,535 toiletries which includes 43,923 to students experiencing hygiene insecurities.

Our Rotary Club donated $2,000 to this 501(c)3 in support of their mission and much of our donation will provide support for the needs of students at Kennesaw State University in Cobb County. Claudia Phillips, the Director of their Collège Pantry attended one of our weekly luncheons on March 8, 2023. She gave a brief overview of their organization and their goals and we presented them with a $2,000 check.
