“These Essential Learning Packages include everything from school supplies such as pens, notepads, and headphones to personal care items such as hand sanitizer, face masks, facial tissues and Vitamin C to snacks for late-night studying,” said Shoma Haque, Executive Director for Steps to Success. “Now due to COVID-19 and campus closures, our mostly first-generation students are facing even more barriers to college completion. We are so thankful that 195essential is bringing some attention, awareness, and fundraising efforts to these issues.”
“I’ve worked closely with Steps to Success for several years. I understand the challenges they face on an ongoing basis as they tirelessly strive to ensure the children that go through their program have the necessary skills and tools to thrive under the set of circumstances that all too often get in the way,” said Jason Harris, Co-founder of 195essential. “The college experience can be a stressful one, even without the complications from COVID, so helping Steps to Success generate additional funds to help fill their Essential Learning Package fund with much-needed supplies for when colleges do reopen is the least we can do.”
