Service

Overview

An essential, integrated component of embodying the mission and values of Notre Dame is serving others no matter where or with whom we are. Although this should be carried out on a daily, impromptu basis, Zahmbies coordinate several major House events throughout the year. Moreover, Zahm men are encouraged to participate in University-wide efforts, and especially to get involved with the Center for Social Concerns.


Service

The men of Zahm are especially known at Notre Dame for their service to the University and the community. The House enjoys on-going partnerships with several service providers, including the Robinson Community Learning Center, Project Warmth, Bengal Bouts/the Holy Cross Missions, the Starlight Children's Foundation, and the South Bend Medical Foundation.

Among many service projects, the House hosts Halloween parties for children (formerly) served by the Starlight Children's Foundation, tutors and serves as big brothers to children at the Robinson Community Learning Center, contributes generously to Bengal Bouts for the Holy Cross Missions in Bangladesh, and helps to build houses for Habitat for Humanity.

One of the House's major events--entirely planned and run by Zahmbies--is the Zahm Spring Carnival, which brings hundreds of children who suffer from chronic illnesses or who live in deprived areas of Michiana to Notre Dame's North Quad for a day of fun. The Carnival includes inflatable bouncy houses and slides, a petting zoo, face painting, can-jam, soccer balls, popcorn, slushies, cotton candy, and plenty of real food.

Moreover, ALL of the profits from Za, our very own pizza parlor, go to charity.
