Catholic Charities News
The recent surge of cases from the highly infectious omicron variant of COVID-19 has many parents wondering what they can do to protect their families, and child care programs evaluating their health and safety protocols.
The MetroWest Daily News featured a local volunteer group that recently connected with Catholic Charities of Boston to make knitted donations for refugees arriving in the Greater Boston area.
Called "Knitting with a Purpose", the group came together in the fall to meet monthly on zoom and work on custom-made winter clothing.
For the 28th year, Catholic Charities partnered with the Menino Fund for Boston and community leaders for a Christmas Eve distribution event, held at the Teen Center at St. Peter's in Dorchester's Bowdoin-Geneva neighborhood. Over 350 families in need received food and other household goods as part of the annual event.
