Wayne State HIGH Program delivers grab-and-go bags to Neighborhood Service Organization amid COVID-19 crisis

The Wayne State University HIGH Program (Helping Students Go Higher) assembled and delivered grab-and-go bags to Detroit-area shelter the Neighborhood Service Organization to help offset the strain the COVID-19 pandemic is having on Detroiters in need.

The bags feature Bombas socks and a variety of nonperishable food items. They were distributed by several HIGH Program staff members and Wayne State first lady Jacqueline Wilson to the Neighborhood Service Organization on Detroit’s west side.

The Neighborhood Service Organization aids older adults with mental illness; children, youth, and adults with developmental disabilities; and provides homeless recovery services. Contact the Neighborhood Service Organization at

About Wayne State HIGH Program

The HIGH Program provides critical funds to Wayne State University students who are struggling with basic needs such as tuition, books, housing, and food. A few hundred dollars at the right time can save a student from dropping out of school or being homeless. Students should not have to decide between basic life needs and finishing their education. The HIGH Program has connected hundreds of students with these basic needs and provided a light at the end of the tunnel for what amounts to the most difficult period of their young lives. If you would like to help, donations of any amount are welcome, and you can find all our information at
