About our College Care Packages with a Purpose

A picture of Kelsey Hastings Golitz and her family


We all need a boost every now and then especially adolescents or young adults living with cancer. Our CEO and Founder, Rebecca Hastings, knows first hand, her oldest daughter passed away from Ewing Sarcoma in 2014. The outpouring of support her daughter received during her four years living with cancer was significant and the family never forgot. Now, through their hugabox care package business, they give back. With each purchase, funds are transferred to cancer centers across the United States designated for Sarcoma Cancer Research. In 2023, nearly $30,000 was donated bringing our total for sarcoma cancer research, over the years, to $130,000+. In the years to come, hugabox plans to expand their reach adding additional cancer centers and increase the gifts from $5,000 to $10,000 per center.

We thank everyone in advance for purchasing our care packages which support and bring attention to this extremely important research. Your patronage is greatly appreciated!

While sending college care packages is a wonderful thing to do, you can also help our cause by donating to one of our many partners directly. Every little bit helps so much to increase treatment options and uncover new science about sarcomas. Here's what UC Davis is saying about hugabox and the Fred Hutchinson Research Center in Seattle, Washington.
