Make the sacrifice

Andrew Ritter and Peter Thompson | Tuesday, February 8, 2011

Dear Notre Dame Family,

This Wednesday, February 9, is Siegfried Hall’s Day of Man. On Day of Man, Siegfried residents will wear only a T-shirt, shorts and sandals. On our way to classes and outside the dining halls, DeBartolo and Fieldhouse Mall, we will collect money from students and staff for the South Bend Center for the Homeless.

We participate in this event in order to show solidarity with those who suffer from the cold South Bend winter on a regular basis. If the homeless are cold every day, why can’t we be cold for one day? We hope that our day of sacrifice will assist the individuals in our community who receive support from the Center for the Homeless.

This Wednesday, we challenge you to support the homeless as the men of Siegfried brave the cold. Please bring money to class or to the dining hall. You can also send a check made out to “South Bend Center for the Homeless” to Fr. John Conley, CSC, Rector, 100 Siegfried Hall, Notre Dame, IN 46556. We will accept donations throughout the month of February.

Here at Siegfried Hall — “where tough meets classy” — we’re ready to make a sacrifice. Are you?

Sincerely,

Andrew Ritter
