How to Help

Supporting Communities During Coronavirus

As schools and businesses shutter their doors in the wake of the developing coronavirus pandemic, we at Catholic Charities are focused on supporting our vulnerable communities through this challenging and frightening time.

Please consider making donations of food, supermarket gift cards and hygiene items (toothpaste, shampoo, soap) so we can keep our pantries and basic needs operations fully stocked. Items can be dropped off or sent to our site at:

Catholic Charities Yawkey Center, 185 Columbia Road, Dorchester - 617-506-6600

(You can easily support us via an Amazon delivery, too.) We will distribute across our network of sites from this central Yawkey Center location. 

You can also donate directly to Catholic Charities by clicking the DONATE button below.
