hoodies for the holidays

Give back this holiday season! Through Hoodies for the Holidays, our Young Leaders Society inspires local high school students to pursue their college dreams.

With help from community supporters like you, we provide students at participating local high schools with hoodies from the college or university of their choice, along with letters from alumni and tips for managing their first year of college.
