Mount Saint Mary College's Dominican Scholars of Hope recently held a Krispy Kreme donut fundraiser that netted more than $1,000 for hurricane victims.

The funds raised from the on-campus sale will be given to the Dominican Sisters of Hope to support relief efforts for their school in Puerto Rico, which was impacted by recent hurricanes.

The Dominican Scholars of Hope is a nonacademic living and learning community for highly motivated Mount freshmen and sophomores. Rooted in the values of the Judeo-Christian and Dominican heritage of the Mount, it is inspired by the four pillars of Dominican life: study, spirituality, community, and service.

The program is spearheaded by Charles Zola, chair of the Division of Philosophy and Religious Studies, associate professor of philosophy, and director of the Mount’s Catholic and Dominican Institute.

“The generosity of the Mount community was truly remarkable and demonstrates that the Dominican pillars of community and service are integral values of our campus family,” said Zola.
