Catholic Charities needs your help to make sure the economically vulnerable are not forgotten and the people in our community don’t go to bed hungry. Feeding Our Neighbors is a statewide campaign to raise funds and awareness about hunger. Thanks to partnerships with the Regional Food Bank, local grocery stores and restaurants, Catholic Charities can stretch dollars and help families who are food insecure. We can assist with basic needs so that they can focus on improving their situation, without worrying about what they’ll eat for dinner each night or what they’ll give their children for breakfast the next day.
We may not see the face of hunger each day, but we have a way to help our brothers and sisters who are suffering.
Vincent W. Colonno is CEO of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany. For more information on Feeding our Neighbors, visit www.ccrcda.org or call Catholic Charities at (518) 453-6650.
