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.

Upcoming Events

We are expecting amazing results in 2018. This year, we will coordinate five events — four public and one private — with a 2018 goal of 10,000 care kits assembled and distributed. The public is welcome to join us at any of the events below to help assemble kits that will help comfort those afflicted with homelessness and poverty.

Got volunteers?
They can Gather4Good right where they are

Gather4Good is a scaleable service project that can be accomplished by groups of 100 to 400 people. Anyone can assemble a care kit, from age 2 to 102! This is a wonderful, multi-generational project that is perfect for church congregations, students from kindergarten to college, youth groups, charitable organizations and more.
