Catholic Charities Month 2020
Catholic Charities Month: August 2020
We are all experiencing a year like no other. The COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenge for everyone. I pray that you and your family have remained healthy and safe during this difficult season of life. August is Catholic Charities’ Month, a time to reflect on the year and pray for an end to poverty. 2020 has been a very busy year as the Agency has been on the frontline of the pandemic, providing food, shelter, basic need items, counseling, and support to an increasing number of individuals and families.
Charitable donations always dip in the summer, but the need in our community is greater than ever before. Throughout the pandemic, Catholic Charities has remained open and available. The Agency carefully formed alternate plans to continue providing programs and services while protecting the health of our clients, staff, and volunteers.
Our resources are strained and we need your help. Your gift in honor of Catholic Charities’ Month will help support the programs and services that have become even more vital to the community in recent months.
Thank you for remembering the poor and vulnerable during this tumultuous time.
