(WETM) – Catholic Charities will be limiting the number of sick individuals visiting their pantries, kitchens, and offices during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Donations, other than monetary, food or cleaning supplies, are being suspended until further notice. Donations may be ordered through RightGift, which will be shipped directly to Catholic Charities.

Donations of cleaning supplies, paper towels, toilet paper, hand soap, and hand sanitizer are greatly needed.

At this time, we will continue to provide services to those in need, including our Community Kitchen. We are following the protocols provided by the CDC to assist with the health & safety of our staff and neighbors. We always clean and disinfect our locations, so we are increasing the frequency of that cleaning. We also have hand sanitizer available for staff and those who do come to see us.

We will post updates on our social media channels and website. At this time, we continue to provide services to those in need.
