Joe loves to spread the word about organizations who advocate for those Mainers without a voice, and that's exactly what Catholic Charities Maine does. Each day, the over 600 employees of Catholic Charities Maine come to the aid of the poor and vulnerable throughout the state of Maine. They see the faces of people suffering from mental illness, hurt and frightened children and families, those fallen victim to loneliness and isolation, those battling addictions, anxious refugees, and thousands of others who have been stripped and beaten by circumstance. A faith-based, non-profit organization, Catholic Charities Maine has been serving the poor and vulnerable populations of Maine since 1966. From food banks in Aroostook to child care in York County, this organization has helped more than 50,000 of our neediest neighbors last year, answering want with generosity and replacing despair with hope.
Saturday, June 23rd is your chance to STAND with Catholic Charities and to support Maine's most vulnerable citizens. From 6-9pm that night at Southern Maine Community College, please come enjoy an evening of beer and wine sampling, savory hors d’oeuvres, live music, a silent auction, and s’mores under the stars. Joe is sure the event will be a special one and urges you to consider attending and lending a hand to this essential local organization.
