At Catholic Charities of Boston (CCAB), we see, each and every day, the need in our communities that continues to grow as a result of the COVID-19 health and economic crisis. While this need is especially amplified during the holiday season, this season also marks a time when many in our communities make an effort to give back or volunteer.
This month, our Volunteer Services team shared with The Boston Pilot thoughts about volunteerism and ways to get involved with CCAB.
This past weekend, Catholic Charities of Boston, with the support of dedicated volunteers and Cardinal Seán O'Malley, distributed over 4,000 meals that will serve over 12,000 individuals this Thanksgiving.
