"To love and serve our neighbors as ourselves."

With a commitment to one simple, Gospel teaching—to love your neighbor as yourself—donors helped Catholic Charities touch the lives of more than 16,000 people in the past fiscal year. This donor support went directly to your neighbors—families or individuals living in the eight counties of our Diocese.

None of these individuals and families met guidelines for government assistance; many of them are employed, but still struggling just to make ends meet. And they are not alone.

Before our fiscal year ends on June 30, please prayerfully consider a gift to Catholic Charities to help a senior, a family, a veteran, a neighbor who needs a hand-up to afford a basic necessity.

Make an online gift today, or mail your contribution to: Catholic Charities, 1300 12th Avenue, P.O. Box 1349, Altoona, PA 16603.
