Since 2010, Gather4Good® and its volunteers have touched the lives of thousands of families suffering from the effects of homelessness, poverty, abuse or natural disasters.
A project of Catholic United Financial, Gather4Good® has held 16 service events around the five-state area in partnership with local Catholic congregations, colleges and groups to give them a chance to unify and serve those less fortunate. Sponsor Catholic United is committed to the administration and promotion of this program in order to fulfill its own mission to be a contributing member of the communities it serves.
With the help of families and community members, Gather4Good® can fulfil our vision of serving for the greater good.
Gather4Good® has partnered with more than 40 local charities, disaster relief agencies, and shelters that work on the front lines of social issues afflicting society today. Those charities have put more than 37,000 personal care kits into the hands of people and families in desperate situations where basic necessities of life are hard to come by. Each kit is assembled and given in love, and offers dignity and encouragement to the person who receives it.
Gather4Good® has expanded. In 2018, our staff coordinated four public events and one private one, the most held in a calendar year. We’re excited to offer this program to communities in the Upper Midwest and to see where new locations and new connections will take us.
