Pathway to the Baccalaureate launched a Baby Supplies Drive in July to provide extra support for NOVA parenting-students in need. Research shows community college students specifically are often forced to dropout due to non-academic issues, and low-income student-parents face a variety of barriers to college success.
Pathway to the Baccalaureate is collecting new or unused diapers, pull-ups, wipes, diaper cream, baby food, toddler snacks, juice boxes, baby shampoo, sippy cups, baby wash and children’s toothpaste. Drop-off boxes will be located on all campuses, as well as Pender. The drive will be held through October 2017.
Thank you to all who have already participated, and the facilitators hope others will join in and support this vulnerable student population. Please see the flyer for specific details and drop-off locations.
