Psychology Club - Food For Thought

Hello Friends and Family:  I am reaching out to you for help.  As many of you know I am a full-time student, studying psychology, at College of the Canyons (COC).  In the two and a half years I've attended this college I have benefited from all of the incredible services that are available to me and I have learned and grown so much in that time.  I am now the President of the COC Psychology Club and I am also the President of the Psi Beta Honor Society for Psychology at COC.  Our mission is community service and helping those in need.

I have recently been made aware that there are around 200 students, who identify as being homeless, that attend COC daily.  These students may be living in their car, if they have one, or living in a homeless shelter, or on a friends couch for the night or week.  They may even be living outside.


They come to COC to learn in hopes of making a better future for themselves and perhaps their family, if they have family members with them.

I am starting this fund to support the on campus "Food For Thought" food pantry that feeds these students, at NO COST TO THE STUDENT, every day.  

The pantry has very specific food needs and through the COC Psychology Club we intend to do what we can to provide them with the food the pantry needs so they can feed these deserving students every day.  

I want to make a difference in these students lives by working with the pantry on campus to fulfill these needs.

I am asking all of you, that have the means, to help.  These students are an inspiration to me and they need the help that we can give them.  

This year, my motto is gratitude!  I am so grateful for all that I have and the wonderful people that are around me.  I would be grateful to you for helping me achieve my goal for this very worthy, local, community based group of individuals that need our help.

Through the COC Psychology Club, we will be able to provide much of the food resources they need with the funds we raise from this Go Fund Me Page.

Thank you for your support and for helping the incredible, academic, resilient individuals who have chosen to educate themselves against many challenging odds.  

Any amount you give will be received with love and gratitude from the COC Psychology Club.  These funds will only be used to support the Food for Thought food pantry on the COC campus.

Thank you,

Chris
