Catholic Charities is always in need of goods and services. We also would love to accept your gently used clothes, furniture, household items, used cars, and even your left over grocery bags… we can use it all, and put it all to great use for those in need! We’ll even accept your vehicle, in any condition!

Another option to donate food to our neighbors in need is to participate in or organize a food drive!

The following is a list of items that are requested by program, or if you would prefer to make a cash contribution, click to donate online or by mail.
