Toro & Notre Dame Donate Equipment on Behalf of "Mow For A Cause"






Member of the University of Notre Dame Alumni Association help out during Toro's second annual "Mow for a Cause" event to help local organizations clean-up and enhance their landscapes. Since 2000, Toro has been the official grounds and irrigation equipment supplier for Notre Dame.




The Toro Company and the University of Notre Dame Alumni Association teamed up recently for the second annual "Mow for a Cause" event to help local nonprofit organizations beautify their communities. Toro, the official grounds and irrigation equipment supplier for the University of Notre Dame, sponsored the annual community service project as part of the Notre Dame Alumni Association's "Day of Service" program.

This year's project included six Notre Dame alumni clubs from across the United States, benefiting organizations in Brielle, N.J.; Buffalo, N.Y.; Charlottesville, Va.; Columbia, S.C.; Ocala, Fla.; and South Bend, Ind. Toro supported the project with equipment and supplies to make the cleanup easier.

At the conclusion of this year's Mow for a Cause, two participating alumni clubs were selected at random by Toro to win one of three prize packages that could be donated to a local Catholic school or charity of their choice. The winning clubs were the Notre Dame Club of Greater Charlottesville, who donated a Toro Single Stage Snowthrower and Toro Power Shovel to the Charlottesville Catholic School; and the Notre Dame Club of The Jersey Shore, who selected the Toro Personal Pace Walk Power Mower, Toro Electric Trimmer and Toro Super Blower Vac. The New Jersey alumni club will raffle off the Toro products to benefit the Notre Dame Jersey Shore Scholarship Foundation.

"We are delighted and honored to receive such a generous donation from Toro and the Notre Dame Club of Greater Charlottesville," said Lisa Goutos, director of development for the Charlottesville Catholic School. "We will enjoy putting this gift to good use, and the students will appreciate having a safe path to school on snowy days."

The partnership between Toro and the University of Notre Dame began in 2000, and supports both organizations' tradition of community service. Notre Dame benefits from the partnership by receiving reliable grounds maintenance equipment and irrigation systems to maintain the beauty of its campus and football stadium; while Toro has the opportunity to align itself with an organization that shares its values, tradition of excellence, and commitment to social responsibility.
