Save The Dates: In less than two weeks, Catholic Charities of Boston (CCAB) will launch our inaugural Giving Week Campaign: Compassion in Action, November 18-25, 2020. This digitally-driven fundraising campaign will replace six events we have traditionally held during the fall and winter which are no longer feasible in the current environment. However, the need for the funds and support provided by these events is more vital than ever to ensure our ability to continue to serve those most vulnerable in our communities.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak in March, we have witnessed a significant and rapid surge in need, particularly for food and living assistance across our Eastern Massachusetts communities. In fact, our five food pantries have distributed over 1.75 million lbs. of food since March.
In an article for The Boston Pilot, our VP for Advancement, Patrick Hewett, shares details about the fundraising campaign and the growing needs in our communities as a result of the pandemic and upcoming holiday season.
