Notre Dame Club of Austin Global Day of Service

Come join us on Saturday, April 29th, and help participate in the 2023 Notre Dame Global Day of Service with NDCOA and VELA, an Austin, TX-based nonprofit serving parents of children with disabilities.

The Notre Dame Club of Austin (NDCOA) is excited to offer families and friends of Notre Dame, St. Mary’s, and Holy Cross an opportunity to participate in the 2023 Notre Dame Global Day of Service with VELA, an Austin, TX-based nonprofit founded in 2010. VELA’s mission is to empower underserved Spanish and English-speaking parents of children with disabilities. 

We will be helping them with VELA’s Family Fun Day. These are play for all abilities events with the ultimate goal of helping families and kids build community and natural support systems. Kids can come and play as they are without fear of judgment. All activities are designed to be accessible by all. Families attending will enjoy all-inclusive games, Spring themed arts and crafts, and yummy snacks! As a volunteer, you will help with set-up, running activities, and/or break-down after the event.
