Catholic Charities Launches Dollar-for-Dollar Silent Angel Match Campaign

You are invited to join in Catholic Charities' efforts through the Silent Angel Match Campaign whereby anonymous benefactors have committed to match, dollar-for-dollar, each dollar raised until Dec. 31.

Your donation now doubles the amount of help we can provide to families and individuals most in need of our programs.

The year 2013 will continue to provide ongoing challenges for the unprecedented number of local families throughout Santa Barbara County who have been hard hit by the harsh economic downturn, which is resulting in food insecurity, loss of jobs and sometimes loss of home.

Catholic Charities served more than 38,200 unduplicated clients last year and provided more than 17,300 families with services. The principal activity was, and continues, through the doors of our food pantries, where qualifying low-income families and individuals can find a selection of supplemental and nutritious food at no cost.

Additionally, case-managed clients can receive rental and utility financial assistance, and referral to other agencies for appropriate services.

However, there is now so many more of those most in need who one year ago would never have required our collective help. And this is where your support can make a difference, especially as we seek to match this generous $1 for $1 matching challenge donation.

Together, we can complete the funding of our current priorities and sustain the work being done in the community. Please join us in this once only annual ask effort!

Thank you for considering this opportunity and for your critical support.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
