A Catholic Charities Champion is a person or group of people who go above and beyond to exemplify our mission: to build a just and compassionate society rooted in the dignity of all people. This past year has presented many challenges to our communities in need. These Champions answered the call and jumped into action to provide our most vulnerable neighbors with services and support. We thank them for their dedication and support in helping us help others.
Meet Eddie, an 11-year-old who stepped into action and coordinated a food drive to benefit CCAB food pantries after he learned of the food disparities in his communities. We're grateful for our donors of all ages who support our mission and help us help others.
80-year-old St. Cecilia Parish parishioner Rod Powell walks every day to his local grocery store, purchases food and carefully packs bags to donate to Catholic Charities food pantries. We are so grateful for the generosity of donors like Rod who always think of others in their communities.
These 17 CCAB Champions volunteered to teach their ESOL classes throughout the pandemic. These teachers go above and beyond their volunteer responsibilities and connect students with other divisions and services to ensure their students receive the help and support they need on their path to self-sufficiency.
The Boston College Football Team saved the day when last November, our Yawkey food pantry staff needed extra help getting ready for the Thanksgiving dinner distribution event. Together, they helped pack over 2,000 bags of food for families in need. We're thankful for partnerships with local college students and appreciate their volunteerism.
