Annual Appeal at Christmas

Please consider making a gift to our Annual Appeal at Christmas to support the children’s programs of Catholic Charities throughout Hartford, Litchfield and New Haven counties. Early learning programs, behavioral health counseling for children and after-school programs for youth are just some of the activities that your gift will support. Our mission is to provide help and create hope for our neighbors in need and your end-of-year gift will provide so many children with the opportunity to succeed both in school and later in life. Make a gift online.
