On Christmas Eve, Catholic Charities was honored to partner with Team Menino, the family of late Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino, to distribute thousands of gifts to families in need at our Teen Center at St. Peter's in the Bowdoin-Geneva section of Dorchester.
On Friday, December 20th, Catholic Charities South in Brockton opened its doors to parents and guardians of about 500 children for a unique gift giving assistance program. Thanks to donations from Toys for Tots and the support of parishes from both Plymouth and Norfolk counties, parents and guardians were able to choose several toys and outfits for each child along with stocking stuffers and gift wrapping supplies.
