We really want to make this an Institute wide appeal. So we are asking all staff and students of DIT to get involved through the class, office, club, society or simply an individual effort.” Roisin O’ Donovan Chairperson of DIT Student Volunteering Committee. 

“We are delighted to say the chosen charities are Pieta House, SVP and the Irish Cancer Society. These three charities do amazing work throughout the country. This year we are doing a huge push for the SVP Society campaign for Food, Toys and Gifts as the DIT SVP Society are back in action”.
