Today: Support DREAMS Program During DSU BBQ

To assist with the on-campus living, the DSU BBQ Team is collecting the following new, unopened items for our DREAMS program: deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, sunscreen, chapstick, feminine hygiene products, shampoo, conditioner, soap, contact solution, bath towels, socks, and wash cloths. The drop off location will be in the Dining Hall during the DSU BBQ on May 23.

Each June, DeSales University sponsors the DREAMS program, which offers educational enrichment to Lehigh Valley high school students. Students learn the importance and obtainability of a college education. With a combination of classroom learning and community events, the students receive knowledge and hands-on experiences, all while living in our residence halls. Thank you in advance for your support!
