First Step for Change

 

First Step for Change is a diocesan-wide effort to collect spare change (or dollars) in refillable plastic baby bottles.  This important campaign raises money to help provide food, clothing, diapers and other “baby essentials” to the low-income pregnant women and families served by our Catholic Charities agencies across the diocese.  Last year, we raised our highest amount ever of $85,814.00 from a record number of 58 participating parishes!

We are praying for success in 2017!

This campaign should wrap up in parishes the weekend of October 28 – 29.  Please count all money collected and send one check to:  144 West Wood Street, Attn:  Nikole Kelley, Youngstown, OH 44503.

If you have any questions contact Nikole Kelley by phone 330-744-8451, ext. 323 or email nkelley@youngstowndiocese.org.

Thank you for all you do to make this project so successful!

A special thank you to the Knights of Columbus Councils and Assemblies that helped to underwrite the cost of our baby bottles this year.  You are wonderful and we appreciate your support!
