Each year, Duke Law School sponsors needy families through Project Share, a program in which we raise money to buy gifts for local families. The Durham Department of Social Services (DSS) matches donors with needy families and gifts are purchased for the adopted families. In addition to toys and books, many recipients are simply hoping for coats and mittens. We need everyone's help to make it a success!
Over the past 10 years, through the donations of faculty, staff, and students we have raised over $35,000, making the holidays brighter for more than 600 disadvantaged residents of the city we share. We raised $2,996 last year, and we hope to raise even more this year.
Make a donation November 18-December 6
The Office of Student Affairs, located in Room 2007, will accept cash and check donations from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Checks should be made out to “The Volunteer Center of Durham.”
The last day to make donations is Friday, December 6. No amount is too small, and all donations are appreciated.
Thank you and Happy Holidays!
