"Love Thy Neighbor Drive"

The Division of Volunteer Efforts (DOVE) continues to provide material and financial relief to our long-standing community service partners. We are now seeking your help in providing non-perishable food, feminine products, diapers, and hygiene items to our neighbors who need them.  Learn more about DOVE’s "Love Thy Neighbor Drive" and see how you can participate.

"DOVE Love Your Hair Drive" Jan. 27- Feb. 28

In today's society, first impressions come from appearances, and hair is one of the most malleable and ever-changing features. Hair care products for people of color are exponentially more expensive than products for people with straight hair, and if proper care is unaffordable, self-esteem and self-image can be negatively affected. Personal appearance is vital, not only for positive self-esteem, but also for opportunities such as job interviews, legal appearances, and investment meetings, all of which allow people who may be struggling with financial insecurity to get back on their feet. Having these resources for proper hair care can make an enormous difference in people's lives. Learn more about DOVE’s "Love Your Hair Drive" and see how you can participate.
