Catholic Charities Raises $63K

Benefits human service programs

Catholic Charities Community Services of Dutchess County raised more than $63,000 at its annual Spirit of Service dinner on June 8 at Villa Borghese in Wappingers Falls.

The funds benefit the human service programs of the organization, which last year provided $50,290 in emergency relief to families and individuals to prevent evictions, stop utility shut-offs and other emergencies. It also assisted 1,736 households with various crises. Services are available to Catholics and non-Catholics alike. See catholiccharities-dutchesscounty.org.
