Catholic Charities News
Due the wild fires on the West Coast, Catholic Charities of Boston’s vehicle donation program is currently in the process of evacuating the Medford, Oregon call center, which will effect wait times for those calling to donate a used vehicle. Please be assured we will continue to answer donor calls and process donations. We have Donor Support Representatives working remotely and our San Diego call center is still fully staffed and operational.
However, we are asking donors to anticipate longer hold times. Thank you for your patience as we work through this unanticipated event.
In the City of Boston and across the surrounding areas, many youth face an array of challenges, including gang violence, drugs, social issues and lack of access to basic needs.
Catholic Charities of Boston’s St. Ambrose Family Shelter in Dorchester is so much more than homeless shelter; the staff and volunteers are constantly developing new ways to support the residents who call the shelter home as well as those in need in the neighborhoods surrounding St. Ambrose.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, Catholic Charities Labouré Center officially announces the cancellation of our Annual Labourè Center Spring Reception (originally scheduled for April and previously rescheduled to September 17, 2020). This decision was made in accordance with the State of Massachusetts’ restrictions on large gatherings.
We are, however, still hosting an online auction this month to support Labouré Center programming. The auction will run from September 1-17, 2020, and can be accessed by clicking here:
