Thanksgiving Care Bags Project

Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate the abundance of God’s many blessings in our lives. It is also a time to recognize those among us who struggle with poverty and may not have a home to share God’s love.

This Thanksgiving, Catholic Charities asks you to come together with your loved ones to assemble meaningful Care Bags right in your own home. Your Care Bags will be distributed to those in need throughout the Diocese through our “Mobile Response Center Vehicle.” We appreciate your prayers and your support!

For more information, contact Sally O’Dwyer at sodwyer@ccda.net.
