How We Function
We are a small company created by Hope College students to serve Hope College students and their families. Our purpose is to help not only make college a more comfortable place but also to help parents stay connected with their Hope College students. We put together and deliver care packages to your student's housing, or to the campus mailroom for your student to pick up. We attempt once with delivery to student housing and if the recipient isn't present at the time of delivery, we deliver the package to the campus mailroom where they will be notified to pick it up at their convenience. This ensures the packages get to the correct students
Our boxes are made on demand. Once an order is placed, a box is made and will be brought to the desired location within a one week following the order. Our boxes are centered around the experience of college and the unique wonders of Holland, Michigan. Many of our boxes include gift cards to partnering businesses such as Crust 54, Lemonjello's Coffee, Holland Peanut Store, Scrapyard Climbing Collective, and Sperry's Moviehouse located in the neighboring downtown Holland in order to encourage your student to enjoy all the downtown area has to offer. Also, we have partnered with a pair of Hope College parents who own Allstar Grooming co. to make their hygiene products available for Hope students for a great price.
Three out of 5 care-package options each month (our Anchored Selection) are consistently available in order to make sure your student can get the basic support that they need at all times. One out of 5 of the care package options will change every month in order to bring some extra excitement in celebrating different times of the academic year. The final care-package option will be a mixture of gift certificates and gift cards to our partnered businesses that will change each month to create a new Holland adventure for your Hope student.
