people served annually throughout the 8-county Diocese of Fresno
pounds of food is distributed annually to those in the greatest of need
increase in the need for Catholic Charities services over the last three years
individual and unique rural outreach events executed by Catholic Charities, annually delivering resources to 42 of the most underserved areas of our Valley
of all the food being distributed by Catholic Charities is through the Rural Outreach Program that delivers essential resources to those who cannot access our brick-and-mortar sites in the metropolitan areas of Fresno, Merced or Bakersfield
Catholic Charities fundraisers provide support towards our programs and services that assist those in the greatest of need throughout the entire year. Approximately 15% of our annual revenue is raised through these events that mean so much to so many. It means being able to feed a hungry family, provide a toy to a child at Christmas, offer diapers to a single mother, and expand services in a way never done before throughout all eight counties within the Diocese of Fresno. Your support allows hope to be shared with those who are hungry, homeless, seeking refuge, disaster-stricken, out-of-work and suffering every single day.
