Service Projects

It's not too late to join the grad service project. Create a team. Join a team. Donate to a team.

Our goal... to raise $40,000 for Smiles thru Lindsey. The class of 2021 has proudly chosen The Smiles Thru Lindsey Foundation as this year's charity. The Smiles Thru Lindsey Endowment Fund was created in 2015 after Lindsey Kathleen More, a graduate of Notre Dame, tragically took her life at the age of 22. The Foundation provides mental health awareness and education through school programs, public speeches, and fundraising events. Our hope is to support Lindsey’s dream to raise money and much needed awareness to help break the stigma for children, teens and young adults who are fighting a mental illness.

Notre Dame students have raised more than $600,000 through the service project in the past 13 years. Join us. Be part of the legacy. See Mrs Nivens for more info.

We are in the Season of Lent!
