First Step for Change

 In Blog, News

Catholic Charities’ annual First Step for Change campaign is an important fund raiser held during “Respect Life Month” (October).  Parishes, schools or other organizations interested in participating in this important effort will be 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.

If you would like to participate or for more information, contact Nikole Kelley at 330-744-8451, ext. 323 or email

We appreciate your prayers for another successful year.  Thank you!
