In partnership with Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Fort Worth, the Alumni Association sponsored a Shamrock Service Project on Friday, Oct. 4, for the Catholic Charities Assessment Center, a 24-hour, 40-bed facility that provides a safe, nurturing and temporary home for children placed in the care of Child Protective Services.

Notre Dame alumni, parents and friends helped to refurbish the center with painting, cleaning, yard work, a “makeover” for the children’s common and private space, and assistance in the facility’s distribution and donation center. This was just one of the numerous public events reflecting the life and spirit of Our Lady’s University in the days leading up to the game.

The Fighting Irish defeated the Sun Devils with a final score of 37-34.
