The Hive's Creation Story  

The Hive has been open and operating for five years. Over the five 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 $6,000. 

Why Donate to the Hive

When you donate to the Hive, you are donating, to an organization that is dedicated to continuously finding solutions that students at Detroit Mercy need. 100% of your donations go directly to Detroit Mercy students. 

Gifts can be made using Venmo, ApplePay, GooglePay, PayPal and all major credit cards.

Since The Hive's beginning, we have had supporters backing our mission and vision. Because of our donors, we are able to expand The Hive. Last year over 1,000 lbs of food was given out and 60 $25 gift cards.

We still need your support to help our Detroit Mercy community. Donate now to The Hive.
