University Holiday Drives

Our campus is currently engaged in several holiday drives (some of which will conclude prior to the publication of this document) and these include:

The Angel Tree to benefit the Brashear Association and Hill House. Gift tags can be taken off the tree located on the 3rd floor of the Union and returned to the DUV office in the Center for Student Involvement. Gift cards purchased in $5.00 increments from Giant Eagle are also requested to support the two food pantries that are sponsored by the Brashear Association. Gifts should be returned to Room 305 Union no later than Dec. 15, 2014.

Spiritan Campus Ministry is also sponsoring an Angel Tree and those gifts will support children in local communities.   Gift tags can be taken from the tree outside of the Chapel in Old Main and returned to Campus Ministry by mid-December.

The Knights of Columbus have sponsored stockings for the children at Holy Family Institute, and Circle K sponsored Operation Shoe Box on campus.

The Student Athletic Advisory Committee is sponsoring a toy drive to benefit Children’s Hospital through Dec. 18, 2014.   Unwrapped toys can be brought to any game between now and the final date of the drive.

DUV is also actively seeking donations of gently used men’s winter coats which will be given to the men at Renewal and continuing to collect food for the Brashear Association pantry through Dec. 15, 2014.

Additionally, we are excited that the Division of Student Life will once again participate in the Five Days of Giving with projects that will support the Bethel Animation Center, Catholic Charities, and Bethlehem Haven.
