As temperatures decline, Catholic Charities is preparing to “Warm Up Winter” for its most vulnerable neighbors by collecting new and “gently used” blankets and other bedding, coats, hats and gloves at each of its office locations now through the end of January. Catholic Charities will distribute the donated goods through its various programs.
Staff at all locations will accept donations between 9 a.m-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. All donated items should be clean, in good condition, and ready to use. Keep in mind that Catholic Charities staff cannot clean, mend, or repair items, and merchandise not fit for distribution must be discarded at Catholic Charities expense.
Donors can bring their coats and blankets to any of the following Catholic Charities locations and receive a tax receipt.
