Support the D.R.E.A.M.S. / Fe Programs

To assist with the on-campus living of our high school visitors this June, the Salesian Center for Faith & Culture will be collecting the following new, unopened items for our DREAMS / Fe programs.

  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrushes
  • Sunscreen
  • Chap stick
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Soap
  • Contact solution
  • Bath towels
  • Socks
  • Wash cloths

Each June, DeSales University sponsors the DREAMS (DeSales Reinforcing Education among Multicultural Students) and the Fe (Future Entrepreneurs) programs on campus. These programs offer educational enrichment to high school students who apply for the DREAMS program or are chosen by the Spanish Chamber of Commerce for the Fe experience.

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.

Items need to be dropped off on or before May 22 to the auxiliary services office inside the DUC or send them interoffice to Lore in the Salesian Center.

Thank you in advance for your support!
