On Point for College is an organization which literally started out of the trunk of the director's car as she helped her daughter and then her daughter's friends, and then friends of friends to navigate all the problems of getting into and then succeeding in college. I have spent many hours for a number of years now driving students to colleges throughout New York for On Point. I have been to New York City, Albany, Plattsburg, Potsdam, Rochester, Buffalo, Jamestown, Oneonta, and many other places, and each trip has been a joy. I highly recommend this organization as a place to volunteer especially is you enjoy driving and I also recommend it as a place to give supplies for college students. On Point helps students prepare for college, get into college, obtain the clothing and bedding they'll need at college, travel back and forth to school, and even to obtain a good job after graduating. This is an organization which cares for each person it helps by visiting them at school to be sure things are going well and by having 'angels' at many of the schools throughout New York who can address a students needs on the spot when an emergency occurs.
