How to Help New Yorkers in the New Year

Friday, December 28th, 2012

Thank you for everything you do throughout the year to help Catholic Charities provide help and create hope for New Yorkers.

When considering a year-end gift, it’s important to make sure your contribution will make an impact. Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York has once again been recertified by the Better Business Bureau’s Charity Review Program, meaning its policies and procedures have been reviewed and meet the standards of the charitable accountability of the Better Business Bureau’s Philanthropic Advisory Service.

While Catholic Charities continues to help Sandy survivors, we need to remember the many others in New York who need help every day. Your 2012 tax-deductible gift can help Catholic Charities protect and nurture children; keep families housed and fed; help immigrants become part of their new home; allow persons with disabilities to find employment; provide necessities for New Yorkers in crisis.

There’s still time to help give families a good beginning for 2013. Donate today, or sign up to volunteer.

What are some ways you’re planning to help your neighbors in the new year?
