Caring For Our Neighbors In Need

A service project for all ages

Personal Care Kits


At Gather4Good events, people of all ages assemble care kits that are distributed locally to homeless and domestic abuse shelters and to those receiving help through the Catholic United Response program. Care kits provide a sense of normalcy, dignity and hope to people in extreme desperation and need.


Catholic United Financial selects the venue, like a park, zoo or parish grounds, and provides the supplies, musical entertainment, refreshments and family fun -- all free of charge. Click here to find out why.

History

Gathering for good since 2010

Gather4Good

Catholic United Financial and its members have been engaging the community to raise awareness about a local need and to benefit people in extreme desperation. Since the program began in 2010, we have assembled over 20,000 personal care kits and raised more than $37,000. In 2014, Gather4Good received commendations from the offices of Congressman John Kline and Senator Al Franken for "devotion to helping those in need." Past Gather4Good events have been held at:
