Care Packages

Sponsored by St. Olaf Alpha Phi Omega

As we enter our new year, we hope your students feel comfortable, safe, and at home at St. Olaf. To help, Alpha Phi Omega, a St. Olaf service organization, offers care packages for students.

Our care packages provide a break for students and encouragement from home. This year we have designed and crafted our own care package system with reusable, fun, and unique items. All packages are planned, created, and distributed by students to students.

Ordering is easy

Simply complete the order form and your package will be prepared at just the right time to surprise and encourage your student. Consider ordering The Ole Plan — all four options — for an easy ordering experience, and be sure to include a personal note with your order.

Aiming for 100 percent parent participation

Because we feel this service is so worthwhile, we hope every parent will participate. Proceeds help provide additional funding for our campus service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega.

Care package options include:

  • Semester I — Back to School Care Package: Available in early October, this package includes an Eco Bag for the bag lunch line, food essentials, fun school supplies, and a gift card to the Lion’s Pause snack bar.
  • Semester II — Winter Care Package: Available in early February, this package includes a St. Olaf drawstring backpack, healthy snacks, and some gear for the winter.
  • Semester II — Spring Has Sprung Care Package: Available in mid-March, this package has all the spring essentials just in time for spring break. This includes gear for the Minnesota weather, outside activities, and some treats (including a Jonny Pops voucher).
  • Thinking of You Care Package: This package will be hand delivered to your student’s room in the month of your choosing. Thinking of You includes a tote bag, plenty of snacks, and some St. Olaf gifts. Consider sending it for the month of your student’s birthday.
  • The Ole Plan: This plan features all four Care Package options as described above.

Choose as many as you like, but please choose at least one. We’re really hoping for 100 percent parent participation.

Thank you!
