The Notre Dame Club of San Diego again this year is sponsoring Thanksgiving Dinner for the students and teachers at Nativity Prep Academy.
Nativity Prep was founded by Notre Dame Law Grad, David Rivera, and it operates as a private, independent, Catholic privately-funded school. Nativity Prep opened its doors to 19 students in September 2001, with the goal of providing an all-scholarship, high school- and college-prep middle-school education to students and families who could otherwise not afford one. Nativity Prep supports its students for success not only while at Nativity but continues the support through high school and college with programs focused on high school admissions and support of the students after high school graduation; both programs are staffed with full-time personnel and part-time volunteers.
As Nativity Prep celebrates its 16th Anniversary as a school, the ND Club of San Diego is celebrating its 16th Anniversary of providing Thanksgiving meals for the students attending the school. Our first Thanksgiving Project supported those first 19 students and families in 2001. There are currently 65 students enrolled in the school. To support meals for the students, families and teachers, we are looking to raise $2,500 this year.
We are looking for:
1. Cash donations (to purchase the dinners),
2. Assistance assembling and delivering the dinners to the school.
