Caring for our neighbors in need

Gather4Good® is a service project for all ages that unites communities in the Upper Midwest in caring and compassion.

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. You provide the volunteers.

Together, we assemble kits of personal care items that will be distributed through local shelters, ministries and charities that help families in need due to homelessness, poverty and natural disasters.

Recent Events

In 2019, we completed Gather4Good events in the communities of Pine City, MN and Columbia Heights, MN. Volunteers at these events packed 4,000 kits in total, meaning 4,000 lives touched. We’re excited to partner with local agencies and parishes to help combat the effects of homelessness and abuse in these communities and the surrounding neighborhoods.
