Light of Hope Fund/Helping Our Neighbors

Thank you for helping your neighbors in need!

The Christmas season is the season of hope. The birth of Christ shines light and hope into a weary world. Your generosity allows us to be the hands and feet of Jesus to 50,000 people throughout Central Washington each year. This year, we have worked to meet basic needs for food and clothing, while supporting the social and emotional needs of individuals, families, and seniors through our caring services. As the year comes to a close, we thank you for allowing us to shine light into the darkness illuminating lives that have grown dark. Your generosity to Catholic Charities has enabled us to extend the love of Christ to families like Elizabeth’s who had nowhere to turn: Elizabeth was seven months pregnant when her husband died unexpectedly. She was working full time and began having preterm labor and had to quit her job. Elizabeth was struggling to feed herself and her 3-year-olds twins when their preschool teacher submitted the family to receive a Light of Hope grant. With your generosity, along with help from PREPARES, we helped Elizabeth make ends meet until she was able to return to work. Please consider a gift this holiday season to help us continue to bring the light of Christ’s love to those who feel overwhelmed by hardship. Blessings to you and your family! Gratefully yours, Darlene Darnell President and CEO
