Highlight On: Community Partners

Almost two months into the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to see the effects of the crisis across all of our programs and services at Catholic Charities of Boston.

Our five food pantries are serving increasing numbers of individuals week over week-- in fact, since March 9, the number of individuals that we serve has increased over 460%. Our pantries have distributed over 100,000 lbs. of food more than this same time period last year.

Keep Calm During COVID-19

With COVID-19 moving through the country at a rapid rate, it’s easy to fall prey to  a negative mindset. We’re often told to worry about only that which we can control, and in a situation that’s as fluid as this pandemic, it may seem that everything is out of our control. In these times, it’s helpful to remind ourselves that our attitudes can make all the difference.


Highlight On: Community Partners

During these unprecedented times, the Catholic Charities team is hard at work responding to an increased demand for basic needs services, including food at our food pantries. To keep up with this demand, we are immensely grateful to our community partners for their generous donations and support. We can't thank these amazing partners enough for helping us help our neighbors in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Paying it forward: one mentor's impact on his mentee and his community

When Representative Nick Collins ran for, and won a vacant seat in the Massachusetts State Senate, he left his spot as the State Rep in the 4th Suffolk District behind.  One of his former aides, a longtime volunteer with Catholic Charities, David Biele, then vied for and won the Democratic primary for Collins’ old post.

Now running unopposed in the upcoming general election, Biele—a lifelong South Boston resident and community contributor—is now slated to represent his neighborhood in the Massachusetts House of Representatives.
