Ask and you shall receive! What started as a simple idea by Nancy Stegman’s seventh-grade religion class at Notre Dame High School, turned into a school-wide “loose change drive” that raised $500 for the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas.
Seventh through 12th grade students at Notre Dame Jr. High & High School worked for two weeks to fundraise with bake sales and daily change collection. In addition, students from Stegman’s Religion class led prayer each morning and afternoon over the school loudspeaker for the hurricane victims.
“The enthusiasm from the Notre Dame seventh grade who approached me with this idea was contagious,the enthusiasm spread throughout the school and it was amazing to see the entire Notre Dame Junior High and High School come together to raise hundreds of dollars for people affected by this tragedy,” Stegman said. All the money collected will go to the Houston Flood Disaster relief in conjunction with Adore Ministries. Adore Ministries is a Catholic Outreach and Missionary team set on reaching people, impacting cities and sharing the Gospel.
Students in grades K-12 at The Notre Dame Schools are encouraged to participate in service activities throughout the school year. Students at Notre Dame Elementary are currently collecting school supplies to send to Houston for hurricane victims. To learn more about The Notre Dame Schools, please visit www.notredameschools.com.
The Notre Dame class of 1977 made a $1,009.00 donation to the Father Patterson Scholarship fund used for tuition assistance. The class of 1977 celebrated their 40th class reunion and the money donated was made in memory of two deceased classmates, Don Hall and Jane Herrmann. Thank you to the class of 1977! Way to lead by example.
