Catholic Charities hosts numerous events annually, each one benefiting a different area or program at Catholic Charities. With 162 programs running out of 157 sites and with new committees and events being developed each year to support these programs, we welcome everyone to get involved. We are proud to say that 92 cents of every dollar raised at Catholic Charities events goes to support people in need.
