Care Packages

Sponsored by St. Olaf Alpha Phi Omega

As we enter our new year, we have three hopes for students: positive experiences, positive individual traits, and a positive institution. Providing positive reinforcement from home can be very beneficial to students.

To help, we provide care package deliveries to students each year. Our care packages provide a break for students and support from home with the option to add your own personal handwritten note.

All care packages are planned, created, and distributed by students to students.

Ordering is easy

One option is to complete the order form on the following page, write your message on the cards, and send it in with a check. Option No. 2 is to fill out our online form. Your package will be prepared at just the right time to surprise and encourage your student.

Proceeds help provide additional funding for our on-campus national service fraternity — Alpha Phi Omega Iota Tau Chapter.
