The Hive's Creation Story  

The Hive has been open and operating for three years. Over the three years, we have blessed students with thousands of pounds of free food. 

But What Exactly is The Hive?

The Hive is an organization here at Detroit Mercy. The goal of the Hive is to increase the standard of living for students. We do this by providing students on all three campuses with free food, hygiene items, and mental health resources. 

How Did the Hive Start? 

The Hive was started by an over-ambitious Detroit Mercy freshman who thought she could save the world in one year. That freshman name was Dohna Dudley. After our Founder, Dohna Dudley, meet her freshman year roommate, who did not receive support from her family, she realized that all students did not have a fair running in the race called college. 

So Dohna went on a journey to find resources for her roommate. Through, the process she realized that the resources that her roommate needed were not there. But, Dohna did not quit. With the help of the University of Detroit Mercy, she created a solution to the problem: THE HIVE

Like our ambitious founder, every day, the Hive strives to meet student needs, such as food insecurity. But to continue, we need your help! 

To keep helping students, we need to fundraise $8,000.
