VIDA Donation Drive

VIDA LogoVIDA (Volunteers for Intercultural and Definitive Adventures) is running a donation drive from April 8th -April 16th to collect supplies for a children’s center in an underprivileged region of Nicaragua. Each year, VIDA continues to advance the causes of global health care, and many lives have changed for the better due to the continued care provided to them. Last winter, a group of UD students joined medical and veterinary teams in Costa Rica and Nicaragua and brought with them supplies for clinics as well as toys for children who were waiting to be seen in these clinics. We hope to send more supplies and continue to help these individuals. Needed donations include the following list of items:

-Crayons
-White Paper
-Construction Paper
-Pencils
-Coloring Books
-Play Dough
-Erasers
-Pencil Sharpeners
-Kid’s Scissors
-Glue
-Toys
-Children’s Clothing

A collection box will be placed in the Townsend Commons after Spring Break. Thank you for your all of your support!

Sincerely,

Jess Applebaum
VIDA President
