Through the Dragon Drive, our annual charity drive, Drexel employees can support a range of local non-profit organizations with a tax-deductible donation that can be automatically deducted from their paychecks. To add to the spirit of the Dragon Drive, local vendors donate prizes that are raffled off to employees who sign up to give during the drive.
