Volunteers at Catholic Charities serve the Evening Meal at Christ House to the homeless and hungry every night of the year.

Help others beat the summer heat by getting involved with Catholic Charities.

Here are six quick ways that YOU can change someone’s life:

  1. Clean out your closet. Look for cool, light fabrics like cotton or linen. Or you can pick up some new T-shirts, tank tops or undergarments. Bring them to Christ House and we’ll share them with our Evening Meal guests and at our Thrift Shop.
  2. Donate fresh or nonperishable foods. Pantry shelves are often empty in summer months. Stop by one of our four St. Lucy Project locations: Alexandria, Front Royal, Leesburg or Manassas, or look for a parish drive near you.
  3. Make a financial donation. Don’t have time to go to the store? You can make a donation online to lift up the homeless.
  4. Give toiletry items. Travel-sized toiletry items are always in high demand.
  5. Volunteer. Give the gift of your time. Bring your family, friends or coworkers to serve the homeless.
  6. Pray. You can do it anywhere! Pray when you think about the heat, your thirst or when you pass a homeless person on the street.

“Whoever cares for the poor lends to the LORD, who will pay back the sum in full.” -Proverbs 19:17
