Alumni Serve for Father Hesburgh

Students serve by helping build homes in Appalachia

Around the United States, dozens of Notre Dame clubs rallied around more than 150 different service projects in the sixth annual Hesburgh Month of Service.

The Month of Service is an initiative created by the Notre Dame Alumni Association to honor University President Emeritus Father Theodore Hesburgh, C.S.C., '39.

“Father Hesburgh often quotes from the Gospel of Matthew about the Notre Dame family’s commitment to service: ‘Whatever you did for the least of my people, you did for me’,” said Katie Rutledge '04, the Alumni Association's service program director.  “This rings true and I thank all of the volunteers who helped make their communities a little better this May.”
