"To love and serve our neighbors as ourselves."

On May 7-8, you can maximize your giving to Catholic Charities with Centre Gives, no matter what county you live in.

Centre Gives is a 36-hour online giving event that is designed to encourage community giving and to highlight and support the great work of local nonprofits. It provides a fun and exciting way for donors to choose the organizations they wish to support and see their gifts go further through the stretch pool and prizes. This year's stretch pool is $200,000. The more that Catholic Charities raises during the event, we'll get a greater a portion of the stretch pool. Gifts made during Centre Gives average an increase of 15% thanks to their generous stretch fund.

With these additional donations, Catholic Charities will be able to reach even who are hurting within our community – seniors, veterans, single mothers, our most vulnerable populations – changing lives for the better in the name of Christ. You can also donate securely online here, or mail your donation to Catholic Charities, 1300 12th Avenue, P.O. Box 1349, Altoona, PA 16603.

Catholic Charities is so excited to join this vibrant community of nonprofits that are able to make more of a difference because of donations received during Centre Gives. Save the date for May 7-8 and be part of our premier Centre Gives event!
