Joy Box Care Pack Program

Dear APU Family,

Greetings from Azusa Pacific’s Office of Residence Life. The end of the semester is often a stressful time for students as they finish papers, study for finals, and pull all-nighters in an effort to end the semester well. Encouragement from home goes a long way in reducing student anxiety during this time.

With this in mind, we would like to offer you the option to send your son or daughter support and encouragement through Residence Life Joy Boxes.

Joy Boxes are specially designed care packages filled with popular snack items and practical goods for students that are delivered via the Student Post Office just before finals week.


Joy Boxes can be purchased for $15. Proceeds support the development of the Residence Life program to further support the care and education of students.

Add a Gift Card

You can also personalize your Joy Box to include one or more gift cards from popular local establishments such as In-N-Out Burger, Chick-fil-A, Chipotle, Jamba Juice, and Yogurtland. Gift cards are $10 increments and may be ordered at cost.

We also have “beverage chips” available this semester for Mantra Coffee, Azusa’s local coffee shop which aims to give 51 percent of their proceeds to local and global community development. Each “beverage chip” is valued at $5, redeemable for 1 hot/cold beverage per chip.

Encourage Students in Need

You can also make a contribution to provide an additional Joy Box for a student in need. If you wish to make a donation, please indicate on the form below the number of additional Joy Boxes that you would like to purchase. The Residence Life staff will prayerfully deliver these Joy Boxes on your behalf.

If you wish to only donate boxes, but not send one to a specific student, type “Donate” as the student’s first and last names in the form and use “0000” for the student’s mailbox number.

Joy Boxes are no longer available for purchase. Thank you for your continued support of students and the APU Residence Life program! If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at (626) 815-3825.
