The resources you provide to those in need and the most vulnerable in our community and around the world are invaluable. I'm proud to be a volunteer of this organization. Keep up the great work!
I decided to become a volunteer at Catholic Charities because of its great impact in our community. This organization it is not just about religion, it is about helping anyone in need.
Share Your Blessings is one of its programs and I was part of it last year. This program is about making sure difficult times do not affect a child’s Christmas experience. After the first meeting when we were told what the program was about, I was so excited that decided to help recruit more volunteers. Other days we sorted gifts, labeled gift bags, and finally distributed them.
Catholic Charities was awesome! Every volunteer was so sweet and thankful to have us help volunteer with them. We helped a lot of people that day and it was a great feeling. They always have new events going on where they help more and more people. I'm glad I stumbled across Catholic Charities to volunteer for.
I have been a minor donor to a Catholic order in another state and was impressed to learn that my intended recipient (an orphanage in Honduras) received 100% of my donation. That was heartwarming to me. As a non-Catholic that was my first experience with Catholic Charities.
My experience as a volunteer at the new Catholic Charities Mamie George Community Center in Richmond has added richness to my life, because I have met so many genuinely kind people there.
