Tae from Detroit, Mi

Finally going to college, but I need clothes and bedsheets to move into the dorms.

I've been taking care of my mom since high school; now I'm moving out to start college. With this basic need met, I'll start school on the right foot!

My need and situation

I am a college student that takes care of my sick mother. I've been out of high school; when my mother got sick I had to grow up early.

My goal is to become a photographer and do graphic engineering. After completing community college I want to attend Wayne State to start my career.

I need clothes and linens to start college in June. I will be living on campus.

Meeting this need will help me because my mother aren’t able to support me due to her illness. I can start college not stressing out about my concrete needs.
