"To love and serve our neighbors as ourselves."

The recent holidays saw another successful season of the Catholic Charities Adopt-a-Family program. One of the most popular giving opportunities of the year, it provides families in need with anonymously donated clothing, household items, toys, and even, in some cases, a full Christmas dinner.

You can, by joining the Guild of Guardians. 

Your contributions can:

- Help 3 or more families with a one-time 100-gallon emergency heating fuel delivery to survive just one month of our cold PA winter.

- Help 4 disabled people living on Social Security disability payments (averaging only $755.10 per month) and living in subsidized housing with an eviction notice for $250.00 each.

- Help provide 2 shirts, 2 pairs of pants, and new shoes for 17 homeless neighbors living in The Martha & Mary House to start a job for approximately $58 dollars each.

You're invited to our Annual Recognition Dinner as we honor outstanding individuals with the 2017 Msgr. William M. Griffin Humanitarian Award and the 2017 Matthew 25 Youth Humanitarian Award

For many neighbors in Central Pennsylvania—more than we often realize—the winter months, especially after the holiday season ends, bring uncertainty, stress, and even depression. These families are facing this winter wondering how they’ll afford basic necessities like housing, food, electricity, heat, and medical care. With the price of heating oil expected to rise, this year’s stress is deeper.

Try to imagine going through a bitter cold winter in Pennsylvania with no heat in your home.

Would you be able to?
