Catholic Charities Month 2019
Catholic Charities Month: August 2019
Although the summer weather is a welcome break from the harsh Chicagoland winters, it creates expenses and challenges for those who live on poverty-level incomes. Hot days can be dangerous, even deadly) for individuals who live outdoors or have homes without air conditioning. Children don’t have access to free (or reduced price) school meals over summer break. Working parents on tight budgets struggle to afford safe and reliable childcare to cover the months when school is out. Isolated seniors quietly suffer in the heat.
Unfortunately, summer is also a time when charitable donations drop, but our client numbers remain high. Our poor and vulnerable neighbors need your help today… for a nutritious meal, a safe place to stay, and for the extra bit of assistance that can make a real difference.
August is Catholic Charities Month and we pray that you will give a gift which will create a positive impact on someone living in poverty. All of our programs and services have seen the impact of the high temperatures this summer. Our work is only possible because of God’s grace and your generosity.
Can you help?
Please send a gift today. We’ll remember your kindness each month with a prayer in honor of you and other donors who help us do God’s work in our community. Our clients will also think of you with gratitude as they transform their lives with the help of Catholic Charities’ programs and services. On behalf of those we serve, thank you!
