Many employers will match your charitable gift, which doubles your gift’s impact
Donate a Used Vehicle
Depending on our need and the vehicle’s condition, your car or van may be used by our organization, gifted to a daughter, or auctioned
Run or Participate in a Baby Bottle Drive
Distribute baby bottles to members of your parish/organization, to be filled with donations over a period of time, then consolidate and donate what you collect.
