LGAND: Latinx Graduate Association at Notre Dame Fundraising Event for Navari Clinic-Hesburgh Library Concourse: 11-15-2018

LGAND, the Latinx Graduate Association at Notre Dame, is asking for book donations for our fundraiser event on November 15th.

Last year, LGAND created a campus-wide campaign to raise funds for those affected by natural disasters in the Caribbean and in Mexico. This year, we would like to continue our community outreach efforts to sponsor a local Latinx organization: The Navari Student Outreach Clinic.

The Navari Clinic is run completely by students and physicians volunteers. Their mission is to provide basic health care to uninsured and under served members of South Bend, Indiana; which includes a big number of people with a Hispanic/Latinx background, as well as African American patients.

They offer Spanish speaking interpreters when needed. The patients are never charged, and they are provided with free medication when available. It runs solely on community grants and donations.

In order to raise funds for this organization, LGAND will have a Book and Bake Sale on November 15, 2018 in the Hesburgh Library Concourse.

We would really appreciate it if you could spread the word about this event when the time arrives. Our most urgent need right now, however, is collecting book donations to sell. We would be eternally grateful if you could help us by forwarding this message to everyone in your department and respective mailing list.

If anyone in your organization/mailing list is interested in donating books for our event, they can contact our Officers through latgrad@nd.edu. We thank you in advance for supporting our organization and our mission here at Notre Dame!

Kindest regards,

Latinx Graduate Association at Notre Dame
