Annual College Trunk Party

What is the Trunk Party?

The College Trunk Party is an annual donation drive facilitated by Urgent 365 that sends 15 deserving high school graduates to college with the essentials they need for on-campus living. Many of our youth have experienced unthinkable hardships and we are determined to make sure they show up to college with more than a backpack and duffle bag of clothes. Students are in need of bed sheets, laptops, notebooks, towels, bath supplies and up to $250 in book award money. This Trunk Party serves as our effort to help more students have a healthy start to their college experience and to do that we need the village, THAT'S YOU!
