Catholic Charities Appeal Press Conference 2020
On Friday, January 17, 2020 Archbishop Charles J. Chaput officially launched the 2020 Catholic Charities Appeal (CCA), Giving Hope to All. The event was held at Divine Providence Village, part of Catholic Social Services. Speakers also included Linda McDonough, CCA Board President; Jean Calvarese-Donovan, Administrator of Divine Providence Village; and Sister Kathleen Schipani, Director of the Office for Persons with Disabilities and the Deaf Apostolate.
Archbishop Chaput spoke on the importance of the incredible work being done through the Appeal and asked that people be as generous as possible to help reach our 2020 goal of $12.5 million. Donations to the CCA feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and help students with special needs receive the Catholic education they deserve. The Appeal also helps desperate families get back on their feet and brings joy to the lives of the aged and lonely.
