supply-drive-smallHeather Konstanzer and I hosted a School Supply Drive for the Mortel Foundation’s new Preschool. It was a huge success!! We received over 1,000 items for the Preschoolers.

We collected supplies from students and faculty at Duquesne University, through the School of Nursing, Alpha Tau Delta (professional nursing fraternity), and Gamma Sigma Sigma (service sorority). We sent out emails to the school of nursing faculty and members of the organizations, posted flyers around campus, spoke about the supply drive at chapter meetings, and also spread the word by word of mouth! Students and faculty were able to donate through the month of April by attending organization meetings or by dropping off the supplies in a donation box on campus.

This was such a rewarding event, not only to receive so many donations, but also to spread awareness about the Mortel Foundation and Haiti.
