First Step for Change

 In Blog, News

Catholic Charities’ annual First Step for Change campaign, an important fund raiser held during “Respect Life Month” (October) kicks off in parishes, schools and other organizations throughout the Diocese on October 1!  All participants have been provided with refillable plastic baby bottles for individuals or families to take home, fill with spare change, and return to your church, school or organization by October 31.

Funds collected help to provide material assistance, such as food, formula, diapers, wipes, and a limited number of cribs and other larger items to low-income pregnant women and families served by Catholic Charities’ First Step programs across the diocese.

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to coordinate this project and all who are participating!  We appreciate your prayers for another successful year!
