For many neighbors in Central Pennsylvania—more than we often realize—the winter months, especially after the holiday season ends, bring uncertainty, stress, and even depression. These families are facing this winter wondering how they’ll afford basic necessities like housing, food, electricity, heat, and medical care. With the price of heating oil expected to rise, this year’s stress is deeper.

Try to imagine going through a bitter cold winter in Pennsylvania with no heat in your home.

Would you be able to?

The greatest Christmas gift of all is the love we give each other. We want to thank all of you, our faithful Catholic Charities supporters, for the love you have given throughout 2016—both to us and to your neighbors.
