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 
    • These packages include gloves, a hat, scarf and thick socks for students during the winter.
  • Finals Study Packages
    • These packages often include caffeine, snack items, encouraging messages and stress relieving activities for students while they get through exam time. 
  • Stocking Stuffer Care Packages 
    • Around the holidays students enjoy receiving non-holiday specific gifts that let them know they're being thought of. 
  • Graduation Care Packages
    • Graduation is expensive! We invite supporters to involve themselves in making the experience a more memorable and affordable one for MAGIC students by adopting 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 emu_magic@emich.edu 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 questions on how to get involved.
