Instead of giving up something this Lent, join us in giving back. With just over one week left in this Lenten season, have you considered ways that you can give back to those in your community?
A unique way that you can donate to Catholic Charities of Boston (CCAB) is through donating a used vehicle- car, truck, boat, or motorcycle. Particularly over the last year living through a devastating pandemic, many are taking inventory of what items are truly "essential" in their daily lives and deciding to eliminate the non-essentials.
