Notre Dame groups adopt 29 families for Christmas festivities
29 families received a Christmas treat Sunday by various Notre Dame groups.
These needy families from South Bend were chosen to partake in a night of Christmas festivities at Compton Ice Arena. There was dinner, a visit from Santa, ice skating, crafts, and lots of presents.
"It feels nice. There's so many of us who are so fortunate that we don't really think twice about shopping for our kids for Christmas or opening up the pantry to see what we want to make for dinner. It's just nice to be able to give back and do something good for the community," says Michelle Mensik, skating program coordinator.
This is the second year families were chosen for a night of fun and getting spoiled.

Te'o Ends Week With IMPACT
After the disappointment of Saturday’s Heisman runner-up finish, Manti Te’o still had one stop to make to finish his whirlwind awards week. Te’o packed his bags and left New York to fly to California for Sunday’s Lott IMPACT banquet Sunday night in Newport Beach.
Te’o capped his week by winning the Lott Trophy to bring his haul to seven awards, thus making him the most decorated defensive player in college football history. The Lott Trophy is named for Hall of Fame safety Ronnie Lott. It honors the college football player for its acronym – IMPACT: Integrity, Maturity, Performance, Academics, Community, and Tenacity.
The other Lott finalists were Arthur Brown of Kansas State, Jarvis Jones of Georgia and Chase Thomas of Stanford. Notre Dame will receive $25,000 for its general scholarship fund for Te’o’s win. Kansas State and Georgia will each receive $5,000 for their funds.
In addition to his Lott Trophy Te’o also won the Butkus, Bednarik, Nagurski, Maxwell, Lombardi, and Walter Camp Awards during the week before finishing as the Heisman runner-up. The previous awards record for a defensive player was five for Michigan’s Charles Woodson in 1997.
Te’o is already back on the Notre Dame campus where he will begin final exams this week. His busy awards schedule forced him to miss ND’s first two bowl practices on Friday and Saturday, but he will be back on the practice field with the team on Tuesday.
The buzz around Greg Bryant heading into this weekend’s official visit to Notre Dame was that the Florida running back could go ahead and commit to the Irish if it felt right.
Well, it did and he did.
The 5-foot-11, 195-pounder from Delray Beach, Fla., offered his commitment to the Irish on Saturday night, giving them 22 verbal commitments in the Class of 2013 and a much-coveted running back.
Bryant made an early commitment to Oklahoma, but backed away from that pledge this summer. Notre Dame emerged as an option last month and the momentum has moved the Irish from option to favorite with Tony Alford leading the charge.
Bryant gives the Irish a pair of running back commits in the class, joining Texas’ Jamel James, but James has flirted with the idea of taking other visits and still may need to do some work in the classroom. Either way, Notre Dame is still aggressively pursuing another Florida running back, Tarean Folston.
