Catholic Community Services (CCS) seeks donations for its fifth annual “Operation Bundle Up,” which provides winter coats and accessories to families in need.
CCS is looking for new or gently used coats, gloves, snowsuits, boots and ear muffs, along with new hats and scarves. All donations should be clean and free of tears or other damage.
An outreach of archdiocesan Catholic Social Services, CCS supports youth and families through a number of educational programs and community resources.
This year’s Operation Bundle Up will take place on Saturday, Dec. 1 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at St. William Parish Hall, located at the corner of Robbins Avenue and Argyle Street in the Lawncrest section of Philadelphia. Coats and winter accessories will be distributed while supplies last, with one coat per child or adult. Children must be present to receive a coat.
For more information, or to donate to Operation Bundle Up, contact Ginger Smith at 215-221-2010 or firstname.lastname@example.org, Shawnick Rodriguez at 215-678-2915 or Basheer Johnson at email@example.com.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
