Since 1941, Catholic Charities Christmas Collection has been an annual tradition when we humbly ask the community of Eastern Washington to support our programs for another year. We are incredibly grateful to be able to share the blessings with our clients through the generous donations we have received for nearly 80 years.
Because of your gifts, families like Vinny and Michaela and their four children will be able to enter our Rising Strong program and heal together. Rising Strong provides on-site housing and wraparound treatment services that help parents sustain recovery and rebuild their lives. Parents attend individual and group counseling to address both mental health and chemical dependency disorders.
Because of your outpouring of generosity, more seniors like Kirk will be welcomed into affordable housing communities like the Delaney Apartments. They are able to make friends build community during regularly scheduled activities like potluck dinners and bingo, and take walks with neighbors in Riverfront Park.
Because of your amazing support, more individuals like Becky can enjoy their independence at Catholic Charities Housing Communities like the Sister’s Haven while focusing on their wellness. They are able to receive services from a supportive housing specialists and case managers that listen mindfully and truly care about the residents.
Because you continue to believe in the dignity of all people, married couples that are experiencing homelessness like Mark and Sonja are able to participate in the Residential Client program at the House of Charity and gain job skills to build a brighter future.
Together you donated a transformational $1.389 million to Christmas Collection 2019, which will change the lives of the 70,000 individuals, children and families Catholic Charities serves across Eastern Washington.
Thank you for being part of the legacy of generosity that touches so many hearts across our region during the Christmas season and throughout the entire year!
