2017 Annual Collection will be held on November 18-19.
The Catholic Campaign for Human Development is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty by funding community programs. Is never to early to start promoting the annual CCHD collection your assistance in promoting the 2017 collection is essential to its success. Together we can make a difference. The 2017 collection will be held on November 18 and 19. Promotional materials will be mail to your parish in early October including posters, envelopes and bulletin inserts adapted to our diocese. If you have any questions about the collection please contact Loxi Hopkins, CCHD/CRS Diocesan Director.
Please join me in solidarity with CCHD to put an end to poverty in our community and nation. The Diocese retains 25% of the proceeds to fight poverty within our own diocese.
The office of Social Action promotes the Catholic Campaign for Human Development and assists parishes, schools and individuals with participation in CCHD programs. The Diocesan Director of the CCHD evaluates local organizations which have applied for national grants and, if appropriate, recommends them to the CCHD Board for approval by the Bishop. In addition, the Board recommends to the Bishop the distribution of the retained portion of the CCHD collection for grants to local organizations. Collection Resources
