Over the past five years, Shuanta Woods has given over 100 students the essentials needed for college dorm life. She started this in honor of her daughter Deja’. Deja’ was unable to attend college due to health issues. Shuanta decided to help other college freshman in her name.
The first year she helped five students; the year after she helped 30; and the year after she helped another 25. This year she has already helped 20 students. Shuanta provides essentials to students using donations from the community. Deja’ left this life on July 13, 2019 just days before her 22nd birthday.
Shunata remains strong and determined to make this project a huge success. She is the epitome of strength and she is indeed a hero.
