I wouldn’t have anything in my dorm without that bundle. I appreciate it because it was a jump start of the essential supplies I needed for college.

Alisha Hodge, BTO 2019

Being a first-generation college student, I didn’t know what I needed when I moved in. Thanks to CDF, it made things a lot smoother. Also, the laptop you guys gave me was actually my first personal laptop. It made schoolwork a lot easier since I didn’t have to share the laptop with my siblings.

Norberto Pineda, BTO 2018

I saved a lot of money from the bundle. Everything lasted me three years! It was a jump start of the essential supplies that one definitely needed.
