Have a group that wants to help support MAGIC?

In the past, MAGIC has also worked with community members and groups to provide the following:

  • Winter Care Packages Expand dropdown
    These packages include gloves, a hat, scarf and thick socks for students during the winter.
  • Finals Study PackagesExpand dropdown
    These packages often include caffeine, snack items, encouraging messages and stress-relieving activities for students to help them through exam time. 
  • Stocking Stuffer Care Packages 

    Expand dropdown

    Around the holidays, students enjoy receiving non-holiday-specific gifts that let them know they're being thought of. 

  • Graduation Care Packages

    Expand dropdown

    Graduation is expensive! We invite supporters to involve themselves in making the experience a more memorable and affordable one for MAGIC students by sponsoring a graduation care package. Graduation care packages often include a diploma frame and funds for the cost of their graduation cap and gown. 

Please contact MAGIC staff at [email protected] if you would like to sign up to provide students with care packages, have ideas for a care package your group would like to develop, or if you have any further questions about how to support the MAGIC program.
