Let's Fight Hunger Together. One Bouquet at a Time.
Bloomin’ 4 Good is a brand new program from Stop & Shop that works to fight hunger in our local communities. They selected Catholic Charities of Boston’s South Division food pantry to receive a $1 donation for every $9.99 Bloomin’ 4 Good Bouquet sold between February 26 through the end of March at the Stop & Shop located at 932 North Montello St. in Brockton.
We are pleased to share a story from Catholic Charities USA, highlighting a collaboration between CC USA and three New England Catholic Charities agencies to help communities facing food insecurity during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Catholic Charities of Boston’s Refugee and Immigrant Services division will host a COVID-friendly Refugee Shopping Day at a to-be-determined date this winter. We will welcome our refugee community members to “shop” through donations for essential items they need.
We’re looking for donations of clothing, shoes, household items, and bicycles to ensure that we can meet the needs of those coming to “shop” with us.
If you are interested in donating, below are the specific items we need:
