The Big Send-Off: Luggage, Linens, Laptop

Investments in our College Readiness Program from Toyota and the JCPenney Communities Foundation made college visits and SAT/ACT Test Prep possible throughout the school year. For their final visit to campus, we were proud to send off the Class of 2020 with a few items they might need in their next chapter, including:

  • An oversized suitcase from Travel Select’s Amsterdam Travel Collection
  • A new set of bed linens, pillow and towels for a dorm room
  • Dell Inspiron Intel Processor laptop, courtesy of Southern Dallas Thrives, a collaborative effort of United Way Metropolitan Dallas and Frito Lay North America
  • $50 gift card courtesy of the JC Penney Communities Foundation
  • A Toyota umbrella
