QUINCY -- Parishioners of Catholic churches in Quincy and Hannibal, Mo., will be asked to support the second phase of Quincy Notre Dame High School's Fund Drive during Commitment Weekend on Saturday and Sunday.

More than 4,000 Catholic families will hear testimonies from QND students during Mass and be asked for pledges and donations to the Fund Drive, which has an overall goal of $438,000.

The goal is $161,000 for the parish portion of the drive, most of which will be collected during Commitment Weekend.

In its 42nd year, QND's Fund Drive continues to help finance the school's daily operations, defray the cost of tuition and provide financial aid to families. The annual effort bridges the gap between the cost to educate and the tuition charged per student.

The Fund Drive kicked off in January as volunteers sought contributions from area businesses and corporations. The alumni portion of the Fund Drive will be conducted the first week of May through the Alumni Phonathon.

Donations may be made by texting QNDFUND to 41444, online at QuincyNotreDame.org and by contacting QND Foundation Executive Director Kurt Stuckman at 217-224-2598 or kstuckman@quincynotredame.org.
