Group wants you to "Park for a Cause" at Notre Dame games

Posted:

If you want to get your car close to the stadium this Saturday, you'll be paying for parking.  At one parking lot, though, the owners won't be making a profit.

Weichert Realtors-Jim Dunphee and Associates is hosting its third annual "Parking for the Cause" for Saturday's Notre Dame season opener.  Each year, Weichert Realtors opens their parking lot to tailgaters and those going to the game for ten dollars a spot.

All the proceeds go to a different charity each time.  This Saturday's charity is the Food Bank of Northern Indiana.  They chose the Foodbank of Northern Indiana for their first charity of the year, because September is National Hunger Awareness Month.

Weichert Realtors Agent Support Coordinator Shannon Coulom says it's important to help local non-profits because they are smaller and don't get as much government or grant funding. 

The food bank's Director of Community Impact, Marijo Martinec says Weichert Realtors is setting a great example.  "They could be making money for themselves, but they choose to give back to the community, which is wonderful and hopefully is a catalyst for other business in the community to do the same as well."

If all 45 parking spaces at Weichert are filled, the food bank will be able to provide at least 4,950 meals.  
 
If you'd like to volunteer with the food bank, you can find contact information on their website or call them at 574-232-9986 ext. 128.
