The rest goes to operational costs, which includes such things as the packing and shipping of packages, as well as shopping, writing of letters, etc. Students receive from 2 to 4 packages that are delivered September through April each year. A minimum of 10 items, and as many more items that will fit, will be found in these packages. The donations will also determine what the students receive.
A donation of $150 is about the equivalent of 2 to 4 care packages and what it would take to sponsor a student to receive these packages per school year, or what it would take to sponsor 4 students to receive at least one package.
