My name is Jonathan and I am a student at Butte College in Northern California. I participate in the Inspiring Scholars program for former foster youth on campus. I recently received gift cards from them for The Grocery Outlet. I was so moved that I wanted to find out who had donated them and extend my thanks and gratitude.
Thank you so much to the Foundation for California Community Colleges for their donation of these gift cards! It was a tremendous help and relieved a lot of stress and anxiety for me in terms of food security. Foster youth, unlike many other students, don't have parents whose refrigerators and pantries they can raid and often, don't have anyone they can call on when times get tough. These gift cards made a huge difference in my quality of life, and in turn, help make my success in school more attainable. Again, my most sincere gratitude.
