Incoming Students Host Food Collection

Service is an essential part of Notre Dame College’s mission, and students are encouraged to live that mission as soon as they step onto campus. On Saturday, Aug. 27, NDC’s incoming students will therefore host a community food collection benefitting the Heights Emergency Food Center.

From 9 a.m. to noon, students wearing Notre Dame College t-shirts will knock on doors in South Euclid and request donations of canned goods. Residents who wish to participate but are not at home at this time are asked to mark their donations “NDC Food Drive” and place them on their doorsteps. Anyone who is living outside of South Euclid but would like to participate in the food drive can bring donations to the Regina Hall Gym during the time of the collection.

Last year, more than 400 NDC students collected 5,000 pounds of non-perishable items for the Heights Emergency Food Center, which serves residents of Cleveland Heights, University Heights, South Euclid and Lyndhurst. The center opened in 1981 with the aid of the Heights Interfaith Council. Staffed by volunteers, it provides more than 500 families with a three-day supply of food once a month.

“Notre Dame College values the partnership we’ve forged with the City of South Euclid, and we want to be a positive presence in our community,” said Anthony Camino, director of campus ministry. “Serving others at the outset of their college careers will hopefully set the tone for the next four years and beyond.”

Notre Dame College is located at 4545 College Road in South Euclid. For further information contact Anthony Camino, director of campus ministry, at 216.373.5387 or acamino@ndc.edu.
