Dear Alumni, Parents, and Friends,
When she announced her retirement this spring, no one would have blamed longtime head women’s basketball coach Muffet McGraw for taking a breath to enjoy some quiet time with family and a few rounds on the golf course. Yet in the midst of this challenging year, Coach McGraw has not slowed down, dedicating much of her newfound free time to helping others and collecting nearly 20,000 pounds of food for the Food Bank of Northern Indiana through a series of neighborhood drives
As September marks National Hunger Awareness Month, we are pleased to announce “Meals With Muffet,” a new initiative and an exciting opportunity for the ND family to rally to help the more than 37 million Americans who are food insecure. To find out how to get involved, visit the Meals With Muffet website
. Any contribution is helpful, no matter how big or small.
And speaking of doing nice things for others, we’d like to invite the Notre Dame family to share notes of encouragement with our students. While the University today announced plans to resume in-person classes next week, the road ahead will not be without challenges. If you would like to participate, we invite you to write a brief note of positivity at familynotes.nd.edu
. Notes will begin to be shared with our students next week.
Thanks so much for considering these two meaningful initiatives. God bless and Go Irish!
Yours in Notre Dame,
