Student entrepreneur delivers condoms on campus

NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY) -- When Kyle McCabe, 19, receives a phone call, it's not always someone he knows.

McCabe started a condom-delivery business called CondAm, which is short for Condom Ambulance.

After he gets a call, he puts on a helmet with a flashing light and rushes to deliver a condom to whoever wants one on his College of New Jersey campus in Ewing within 5 minutes. He carries them in a black back pack.

McCabe says weekends are the busiest time for deliveries.

So far condom brands Trojan and Lifestyles have reached out and offered to partner with him.

Kyle says the service is available 24/7, and he's got a couple volunteers to help him when he's busy.

His website -- condam.net -- lays out the terms. Students can buy a condom for $3 or 10 for $15.

Delivery can be face to face or carried out discreetly (condoms under the door) for cash and a waiver printed out from a computer.

McCabe says he hopes his business will catch on at other college campuses. He also says he understands that not everyone will be in support of what he's doing.
