Community Cupboard Campaign
We all know that necessities such as paper towels, laundry detergent, and bar soap can add significant dollars to our monthly grocery expenses. Many of the individuals and families Catholic Charities serves have a difficult time affording these basic products, which cannot be purchased with SNAP (food stamp) benefits.
The Catholic Charities Community Cupboard Campaign collects personal hygiene, cleaning, and paper products that all of us need in order to feel good about ourselves. When Catholic Charities is able to offer clients these items to our clients, we affirm– and sometimes restore– their dignity and sense of self-worth.
Local parishes, community organizations and youth groups will be asked to collect these taxable pantry items from July 18 through July 25 and drop them off at the local Catholic Charities agency site nearest them. A list of drop-off sites can be viewed on our locations page.
Participants in this campaign can also purchase hygiene or cleaning products through AmazonSmile. Items are purchased on-line through your personal Amazon account, and then delivered directly to a Catholic Charities service site. Additionally, 0.5% of your eligible AmazonSmile purchase will be donated back to Catholic Charities. Win Win!
