More about Manda’s Move-In:
“I was adopted from the Children’s Home Society in Greensboro seventeen years ago. As I have grown up I decided I wanted to give back to the place that was able to give me a home and give back to those who were not as fortunate as me to gain a home to grow up in. With the amazing family I was given, I have found that it is easy to take for granted the things that many others may not have the opportunity to experience, one of these things being shopping for college with my parents. While I myself will not be going to college until August of 2023, there are many kids who went sooner, are going now but will not get to go shopping with their parents for what they need and I would like to help them have what they need to be prepared for going off to college. I realized how lucky I was to have been adopted and decided to start Manda’s Move in to make a difference and emulate the college move in and shopping experience to a degree to minimize the emotional and financial struggles that come with the transition from early adulthood in high school, to adulthood in college. I started creating care packages including new towels, sheets, blankets, pillowcases, silverware, and dinnerware sets as well as other helpful items to assist these teens in their journey to adulthood. In my first year I was able to help ten teens from the Children’s Home Society of Greensboro with full care packages, raise $800, and donate other items for those who needed them. I hope to expand my program to help out other locations of the Children’s Home Society in the future.
