Notre Dame raises more than $6,000 for mission trip

 
Notre Dame High School’s Team Puerto Rico International Dinner Fundraiser exceeded success. In an effort to raise money for the school’s first ever mission trip to Puerto Rico, NDHS’s Team Puerto Rico hosted an International Dinner on Friday, April 10, in the Notre Dame Cafeteria. The dinner offered a variety of meals that featured recipes inspired by six different countries: Puerto Rico, Italy, Mexico, Mali, India and Poland. Included in this event was a kid’s corner, a raffle drawing and a Chinese Auction. In just three hours, Team Puerto Rico served over 200 people and raised over $6,000.
 
Team Puerto Rico consists of a group of students, faculty and staff and parents who are committed to serving others and to provide those in need with the things they lack the most. This is the work that they will be doing in Puerto Rico during their mission trip, but it is also the work they are doing now. All remaining food from the event was donated to the Samaritan House in Elmira (Catholic Charities) in an effort to feed those in need of a hot meal.
Team Puerto Rico gathered for prayer moments before the dinner began.
"We are extremely gratefully for the amount of support received during this event and thank all of those who helped make it successful. We are blessed to have this support and we hope that we have inspired others to join us in helping those in need," stated Team Puerto Rico member and Notre Dame’s Director of Public Relations and Marketing, Jessica Kneaskern.
 
Team Puerto Rico will be hosting a Mother’s Day brunch on May 10 in the Notre Dame Cafeteria from 10-1. Come enjoy your favorite breakfast foods, lunch items, activities and raffles! The cost for the event is $10 per person and $5 for those 8 and under.
