We are a group of volunteers from Bedford, Massachusetts who organize and assemble donated items into care bags for college students in need. We gather twice a year, so all of the bags are ready for the start of the fall and spring semesters.


Since 2013, our group has worked together to donate over 1000 bags to local Community Colleges and Universities.


Our mission is to ensure that each student who receives a care bag knows how much our group, 'Students Assisting Students' cares about them and lets them know they are not alone. 

Please email us if you would like to join our group.
