Irish To Help Out

For Notre Dame, the Sugar Bowl is about a lot more than just a football game or a chance to show the Irish really can beat one of America’s elite teams.

Hundreds of people associated with the university -– students, alumni, staff and administrators –- will participate in service events in the New Orleans area to help in the on-going recovery in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Those events will include volunteering with cleanup work, a park beautification project and home restoration

These activities were organized by Notre Dame’s Alumni Association and Center for Social Concerns, and Catholic Charities.

Irish players also will help out when they arrive in New Orleans on Dec. 28. They’ll help with a project to restore a troubled youth building.
