The Notre Dame Community is a special place where many of us have spent years of our lives growing in faith, giving our time and talents, building lifetime friendships, and supporting the community at large. Our children have experienced a nurturing and supportive environment to learn, our families have felt the care and support of friends during challenging times, and we've seen countless friendships grow through our volunteer efforts as we worked to support Notre Dame Parish and School. This year, we have all felt extremely challenged. We have had to learn new and better ways to accomplish our everyday tasks. We have gotten used to seeing each other through a screen. We have gotten used to going to mass virtually. Our teachers have completely changed the way in which they present their lessons, and have adapted so well. Our children wear a mask the entire day without a thought.
While we have learned to be adaptable, we also look forward to being together again...to being the strong, tight knit community we are. Soon, we hope that can happen. But right now, Notre Dame Parish and School needs your help. We will not be able to hold our traditional fundraisers, which usually raise close to $130,000 in support of the school and parish. We have decided to collaborate our efforts and hope to bring you a fun, interactive, and virtual fundraiser. It will take place via Facebook for the next 4-5 months. We will be offering duck races for 25 people per race with great prizes. Each week, the number of races will vary, but we expect the amount to grow as our Facebook group grows.
In order to make this happen, WE NEED YOUR HELP! And it can be done from your home! We have tried to lay the ground work so that this will be easy and a once a month time commitment that is broken down by task. If it has been awhile since you’ve helped at Notre Dame or you are looking for a tangible way to be supportive of the Notre Dame community, please consider helping. Let’s come together as a community and make this our most successful fundraiser yet.
