Catholic Charities seeks to give families beds this Christmas
Catholic Charities of the Diocese of St. Cloud is looking to raise $10,000 in the next two weeks to purchase beds for families in need.
Just over 150 families have been adopted this holiday season in Catholic Charities Share the Spirit Program. However, sometimes of their needs are greater than the resources of the generous groups who adopted them.
“About 30 percent of the families adopted this year have some type of larger need,” said Trina Dietz, Share the Spirit Coordinator. “The biggest need by far is beds – if we are to fulfill all wishes, we need at least 37 twin-size beds for kids, plus some larger beds for moms or dads.”
Of course, as any child knows, Santa doesn’t always deliver what you wish for, but Dietz says by coming together, the community can provide a merry Christmas for families in need.
