Catholic Charities begins and ends a day with friends

Catholic Charities and Redeemer Presbyterian Church in San Antonio partner to feed the hungry in San Antonio during Christmas on December 6. Over 700 Catholic Charities families received Boxes of Blessing from Redeemer Presbyterian with enough food to help feed a family of four for one week.

For several years, the two faith communities have joined forces thanks to the generosity of Redeemer Presbyterian Church sharing over 700 of their signature Boxesof Blessing withCatholic Charities individuals and families. Boxes include staples for cooking such as cornmeal, flour, and sugar, nonperishable foods including rice, pasta and beans, and even treats like cookies. Boxes were delivered to Guadalupe Community Center in the morning and individuals and families lined up on Cesar E. Chavez Boulevard to receive a Box of Blessing.

The weekend alsod serve as the finale for The Spirit of St. Nicholas virtual event and auction benefiting Catholic Charities. Virtual tours, inspiring videos, and an online auction engaged Catholic Charities’ supporters and friends with testimonials and an auction that boasts over 150 packages and baskets at every price point.

Catholic Charities’ President/CEO, J. Antonio Fernandez said, “It has been a different year for us and we are happy we can serve our community during this challenging year. This day continues to serve as a full circle day beginning with service to our brothers and sisters with our friends at Redeemer Presbyterian and ending with support from friends of our agency. The day serves as a reminder of how we all need to work together to serve the most vulnerable among us.”
