Dear Friends of Catholic Charities,
As we prepare to celebrate spring in the North Country, we are grateful for the help Catholic Charities has received from our generous donors during the past year. The pandemic has been a challenge for us primarily because individuals and families who had never experienced hunger and poverty firsthand, were suddenly in need of food, clothing, and shelter assistance. Our agency’s response to the needs of the most vulnerable members of our communities was made possible by your willingness to support our programs and services through the Mother’s Day and Christmas appeals.
As we prepare to celebrate Mother’s Day 2021, we are asking for your help once again. As we begin our recovery from this Covid 19 health crisis, the demand for our services remains quite high. We need our volunteers, our supporters, and our benefactors to journey with us on this continuing mission of charity and justice. It is your financial gift to Catholic Charities that provides the resources that allow Catholic Charities to respond.
Catholic Charities continues to serve the neediest and most underserved in our eight counties across northern New York. Through our food pantries, soup kitchens, migrant outreach, parenting education and financial assistance to individuals and families, we help those with the greatest of needs.
But soon, thousands of north country residents will face financial crisis and difficulty paying utility bills because the protections provided by moratoriums will expire. I am hopeful that because of your financial gift, Catholic Charities can be there for them. We see the hungry, the homeless, the addicted, the sick, the lonely, and all those who are suffering.
Through providing these persons help…we create hope.
Your financial gift will provide essential programs and services to people throughout all eight counties that we serve.
On behalf of those who are hungry and homeless, people who are alone and isolated, and families that struggle with poverty…Thank You!
Deacon Patrick J. Donahue, LMSW D. Min
