Day of Man

Johnny Dang | Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Dear Notre Dame community,

Thank you for making this year’s Day of Man such a success. With your efforts, we were able to raise about 5,000 dollars for the South Bend Center for the Homeless this year.

Your donations really showed solidarity with the homeless and we all thank you for your generous contributions. The point of this fund-raiser was to raise awareness about how the homeless struggle through the harsh winters with not much shelter and protection. Your donations are going directly to fighting this problem.

Although the Day itself is over, donations will still be accepted throughout the month of February. Checks can be sent to Fr. John Conley C.S.C. at 100 Siegfried Hall, or directly to the South Bend Center for the Homeless at: Development Center for the Homeless, 813 S. Michigan St., South Bend, IN 46601. Once again Notre Dame, thank you for making this year’s Day of Man so successful.

Day of Man

Johnny Dang, Andrew Ritter | Monday, February 13, 2012

This Wednesday, Feb. 15, is Siegfried Hall’s Day of Man. Siegfried residents will wear only a T-shirt, shorts and sandals as a display of solidarity with the homeless of South Bend. 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.

By participating, we 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. We know this year may not reach the frigid conditions of previous years, but for the homeless, the cold is a challenge every day. 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, 100 Siegfried Hall, Notre Dame, IN 46556. We will accept donations throughout the month of February. Show some love for those in need, and help by donating whatever you can.

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