The St. Lucy Project
Feeding the Hungry, Nourishing the Soul

Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Arlington (CCDA) believes passionately in a future without hunger. Right now, approximately 219,000 people (from Feeding America statistics) in our diocese are food insecure—they do not know where their next meal will come from.

In response, Catholic Charities has re-energized its food distribution program by adding a food donation and wholesale distribution location in Manassas, and increasing food to its three CCDA pantry locations in—Alexandria, Front Royal, and Leesburg. The warehouse connects a diocesan-wide network of many parish and interfaith/community based pantries. These pantries are served by your support of donated food, time or financial gifts in support of The St. Lucy Project.

Catholic Charities established the emergency financial assistance program to help those who are experiencing a one-time financial crisis in their lives. We help or assist in the prevention of homelessness and the cut-off of essential utilities. We serve residents of the Diocese of Arlington regardless of their race, creed, religion or national origin.

The demand for these services is very high and we have limited funds, so assistance is given on a first-come first-serve basis. Those who are eligible for assistance must be seen in person at the Catholic Charities emergency assistance office.

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.
