Like many of you, we sent our Bear off to school to begin the next chapter in life. We were blessed to send our Bear with all the essentials to thrive and enjoy life on campus. Through social media and connecting with parents both internationally and domestically, in a very short amount of time we found ourselves welcoming multiple Bears into our family. With many Bears far from home we welcomed this opportunity to serve the needs of students and in some cases, we are just a local contact a parent can count on when emergent needs arise.
It was through parents reaching out and serving the Bears, that we soon came to realize that not all Bears are equipped with the necessary essentials to enjoy campus life. We found that some Bears were “Sight Unseen, Two Suitcases and a Dream.” These are Bears that have arrived on campus with no prior visit, with only items that can fit in two suitcases and a dream of obtaining an outstanding education.
Our initial response was a plan of action to reach out to friends and family to aid in support of providing essential items to these Bears. Over the course of the past several years, we have been successful in our endeavors through this method. However, with the passing of time, our list of Bears has grown tremendously, and it is our desire to continue to serve as many Bears as possible.
While the needs of the Bears continue to exist and grow, we have never charged anyone for what we have been blessed to provide. We have struggled in our hearts with this issue as it is our belief of service above self. We have launched OnCampusMom.com as an avenue to support our continued outreach for students in need and with your kind support we can continue serving our current den of Bears and other Bears that become part of our family along the way. Proceeds and donations support The OCM Foundation, Inc. which is recognized as a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity.
Listed below you will find items we have been blessed to provide and we will strive to continue supporting the Bears just as if they are our very own.
