Details about delivery dates are under the Key Dates menu item link at the top of this page, as well as the delivery locations/process. Please have your student check the pickup location listed there before contacting us. Even though it's nice to send the package as a surprise, you don't want your student to miss out on the goodies so we encourage you to check with them that they did receive it, before it's too late.
Please select the Key Dates menu item link at the top of this page for the location of care packages.
Whether you place your order by mail, phone, or online, you will receive an automatically-generated confirmation email for your care package order, (if you supplied an email address). For mail-in orders, it can take up to a week before your order reaches us and is processed. If after a reasonable amount of time you still don't have a confirmation email, check your Spam folder. If you still don't find a confirmation email, you may contact us (see link above) to confirm your order.
Yes! Once you have added your care package to your shopping cart, you will be given an opportunity to include an encouragement message that will be placed inside your student's care package. Your message will be printed on an encouragement card with the same inspirational quote as the one you received in the mail.
The deadline in the letter you received is a mail postmark deadline. If you place an order in the mail by that date, you're good. If you missed the postmark deadline, you may still be able to order online. (Check the Key Dates menu item link above for online deadlines). If you've missed the online deadline we would be unable to accept your late order as it makes it difficult to get the package to your student on time.
We understand that things change. Please contact us as soon as you possibly can in this situation. If your student is transferring to a different school, we can ship the remainder of the plan to their new school. If they've chosen to take a semester off, we can refund any packages that haven't already shipped so it's important that you let us know right away. Packages already shipped and delivered to the university will not be refunded.
A portion of the proceeds from this care package fundraiser goes right back to your students through the store-sponsored organization listed below.
This store is sponsored by the Valparaiso University Guild. Please direct any questions about this website or our care package program to 800-929-8184 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
