Story Behind the Program
The program was inspired by the incredible enthusiasm from students when they learned about their acceptance into college. Their ‘bed party’ celebrations impacted Bake Back America to partner with Colleges and Universities across the country to reach their student population that is in need. . As a result Students helping Students was designed to give volunteers the connection to to these students by collecting donations to purchase items while they were also preparing for such an exciting time.
