Alabama, Notre Dame team up for service project


Alabama fans unable to attend the game will also have an opportunity to lend a hand in the spirit of the national championship service project. From 9 to 11 a.m. , Jan. 7, volunteers will work with Tuscaloosa Parks and Recreation at a local park and help with tornado cleanup with the Tuscaloosa Volunteer Reception Center. Check-in will be at 8:30 a.m. in the Ferguson Center Plaza on UA’s campus. Transportation will be provided to the service location and lunch will be available after the project.

“We certainly have a culture of football being very important at UA,” Sherman said. “This is just a great chance for us to link football with service so, while being a fan of the Crimson Tide, you can also be a fan of making a positive impact in your community.”
