Care Packages

Overview

We are proud to partner with Care Package Express for our care package program again this year! Care Package Express is owned and operated by Kim Chiurazzi, who is the parent of a Biola alumnus. Below are the current package options, but be sure check back soon, as new care packages will be added frequently! Seasonal and holiday packages will be available throughout the semester. Custom care packages are available upon request. Please call (949) 293-9784 or email carepackageexpress@cox.net for inquiries.

Order a Care Package

To order a care package, please email Care Package Express at carepackageexpress@cox.net or leave a voicemail for Kim at (949) 293-9784. When ordering, please provide your name, your student's name, student's mailbox number, student's email address, the care package selection and your return telephone number. Kim from Care Package Express will call you to confirm your order, and to process your credit card payment with MasterCard, Visa or Discover. Please do not send credit card information via email as the vendor will process payment over the phone. All prices include tax and delivery. Although care packages cannot be delivered directly to your student's dorm room, you and the gift recipient will be notified by email of the package delivery to the Biola mailroom.
