UCLA has 100+ students who are Foster Kids.  
Let's help them achieve their goals!



Most of these kids stay in the dorms all alone for winter break....many don't have anyplace else to go for the holidays!

Help us throw them a Party and get them some much needed essentials (toiletries, school supplies) and some holiday cheer (chocolate, food gift cards, clothes!)

Video that inspired us! Foster Kids receive unexpected love & support on Dorm move-in day. 

Donations Needed:

We still need items on the Amazon Wish List:
- Toiletries & essentials

Mission

The Bruin Guardian Scholars Program serves 140 current and former Foster youth who attend UCLA.

These students have overcome barriers such as homelessness, family mental health issues, and abuse throughout their lives and are extremely resilient. BGS provides a welcoming community of peers who have faced similar challenges in life. 

For your reference: UCLA Foundation Tax ID #95-2250801 designate the gift to Bruin Guardian Scholars #62274O in the memo line

The Dorm move in event was a huge success thanks to your donations and volunteering! We were able to equip all the students with sheets, towels, pillows, blankets, toiletries, extension cords, lamps, school supplies, food gift cards etc. and help them settle into their dorm rooms. Thank you for your generosity and energy!
