This campaign ended on April 06, 2022, but you can still make a gift to University of Dayton by clicking here!

The Project 

We are raising money to spend 9 weeks this summer working in Salyersville, Kentucky. We will be serving and building relationships with members of the community through a number of different programs we will be organizing and running. These include a Day Camp for the younger children, a Teen Center, and visiting a local nursing home. The UDSAP team will work with all ages in the community to improve their lives, and change our own. Besides helping the community, the UDSAP team will be learning to live life simply in a faith based community. We will be recycling and reusing things and working daily to improve our relationships with God through daily prayer and faith activities. UDSAP is one of the University’s oldest and most beloved programs, and we are so excited to continue the tradition this summer!

Who We Are 

We are a group of UD students who choose to spend the summer in community with the residents of Salyersville, Kentucky.  We dedicate ourselves to relational service to this community, and in turn this community leaves an impact on us. UDSAP is supported by UD Campus Ministry and we live through the Marianist values that define our faith.  Since the beginning of UDSAP 56 years ago, our values of simplicity, community, prayer, faith, and service have built a strong bond with the community of Salyersville.

The Impact 

UDSAP's impact is near to impossible to measure.  Over the course of 56 years we have walked with the community of Salyersville as they have grown and changed.  Along the way, Salyersville has also walked with UD students as their world views are challenged and transformed.  Mutual relationships define UDSAP, and our continued hope and goal is to meet needs of the community while also building relationships that go beyond 9 weeks each summer.

What Your Gifts Will Do 

Your gifts make this entire summer possible. From letting us live out a summer of service, to being able to play games with the kids and bingo at the nursing home, your donations make it happen! For the past 56 years, Dayton students have been forming relationships with the Salyersville community full of joy, laughs, understanding, and love.

Share this Message 

It’s clear that there are so many things to love about UDSAP, and we only hope to spread it further! Please share this post with friends, family, and colleagues so that our story, the story of Salyersville, and the countless stories in the past 56 years of UDSAP can continue to grow.

Thanks for Your Support!

Your donation to UDSAP is greatly appreciated!  It is impossible for our program and the other service programs of Campus Ministry to run on just our history; we need the help of our extended family and friends with prayerful and financial support.  Your contributions will not only support our UDSAP community—they will help serve the Salyersville community by providing fiscal assistance for the day camp, teen center and nursing home.

Thank you

To all who donated to the UDSAP 2022 community, THANK YOU.  Together, we have raised $1,890 over our target of $8000!  We are so excited to journey with you all this summer, and are excited about the possibilities for growth this summer will bring.  Your donations will make the reality of building relationships within community and particularly with folks in Salyersville, all the more real and feasible.  Although our campaign has ended, your support in prayer continues to be a valuable part of the larger UDSAP community.

Thank you again, and we look forward to sending you some updates from our formation and summer experience.

WOW!  Thank you to everyone that has helped us to meet our goal of raising $8000 for UDSAP 2022.  We are overwhelmed by the support and generosity we have experienced, and are so thankful.  With 8 days remaining, we are happy to say that any additional gifts will continue to go towards programs this summer and beyond.

The UDSAP 2022 community met on Monday to discern job groups, and are excited to begin planning for this summer.  We will continue to update you all in the coming days with other ways you can support this amazing program.  Thank you again, and we feel so incredibly honored to carry on the tradition of UDSAP.
