About

Due to the early end to the semester, the Division of Volunteer Efforts (DOVE) is pushing up its annual toy drive. Each Christmas season, DOVE provides gifts to several schools and agencies in Newark, the Maplewood South Orange School District, and the Don Bosco Youth Center. In addition to local sites, DOVE donates gifts for the impoverished children in Appalachia, West Virginia, as they have done for over 25 years. Many of these children would not receive a Christmas gift if not for DOVE's donations, and we are especially devoted to making Christmas happen for our vulnerable community partners who have felt the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic most. 

Each year, members of our Seton Hall network donate upwards of 1,500 toys for children in need. We then sort, wrap, and load the gifts into the DOVE vans. It's your generosity that makes this all possible. To learn more about how to donate items, click here.

Thank you for continuing to be a part of this Christmas miracle. Merry Christmas in October! 



Updates

This weekend the DOVE office received SO many toys. Thank you so much to all who have participated in the Christmas in October Toy Drive. There's still time left to make a gift!
