DOVE Philanthropy Project
"Haiti Relief Drive" Aug. 24- Sept. 18
DOVE has cherished our relationship with the Maison Fortune Orphanage in Hinche, Haiti for many years. Since 2007, hundreds of Seton Hall students have traveled to Maison Fortune, forming lasting bonds with the children who are housed, fed, and educated there.
COVID-19 has caused an even more dire need for our friends in Haiti who already suffer the effects of poverty and food insecurity. DOVE is committed to providing the materials that Maison Fortune Orphanage so desperately needs. Items collected will be a part of a large container shipment that will be sent to Haiti in late-September.
Ways to Participate
Move-in Day Donations
We welcome all students who are returning to campus to bring these items during your move-in timeslot. Contactless drop off for all drives will be located in the Boland Hall Lobby, Xavier Hall Lobby, Aquinas Hall Lobby and the COVID-19 testing site on the Main Campus.
