Catholic Charities seeks to give families beds this Christmas
Catholic Charities of the Diocese of St. Cloud is looking to raise $15,000 in the next two weeks to purchase beds and other large items for families in need.

Just over 175 families have been adopted this holiday season in Catholic Charities Share the Spirit Program. However, sometimes their needs are greater than the resources of the generous groups who adopted them.

“More than one-third of the families adopted this year have some type of larger need,” said Trina Dietz, Catholic Charities Communications Coordinator. “The biggest need by far is beds – if we are to fulfill all wishes, we need at least 40 beds. If we can fill that need, then we can move on to things like refrigerators or tires.”

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.

Donations are being accepted now online or by calling 320.650.1550.
