    SAN DIEGO, CA, December 04, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Off-Ramp Donations are a package of everyday essential items that can be kept in your car, and given to individuals in need.

Packets include necessities such as snacks, water, and personal care items like tissues and a toothbrush. "Every day I see people down on their luck when I'm driving around town," says Cancer for College founder Craig Pollard. "I want to give these folks a little something to let them know that I care, to perhaps make their day a little easier, but usually I don't have anything handy. The idea of having care packages in my car struck me as a way to pay it forward."

In addition to providing immediate help to individuals, Off-Ramp Donations benefits other charities as well. Charities that purchase these Off -Ramp Donations packets can sell them to their members, thus raising funds for their organization. The original purchase from Cancer for College raises funds to provide college scholarships for cancer patients. Off-Ramp Donations come in quantities of 6 for $30, 12 for $60, 24 for $120 or 48 for $240 + shipping.

Pollard, a two-time cancer survivor and double amputee, founded Cancer for College in 1993. He saw firsthand how cancer can not only devastate a family physically and emotionally, but can destroy them financially as well. Since its inception Cancer for College has granted nearly $2 million in scholarships to more than a thousand cancer survivors across the country.
