The most vulnerable in our community may not have access to hygiene products, cleaning products, and additional food and water while the COVID-19 remains a threat to our community. Catholic Charities is committed to providing basic needs and strengthening the vulnerable as part of our Emergency Disaster Relief efforts to individuals and families, children and seniors, low-income residents and the homeless.
