Accepting Donations for the Holidays

by Tino Laterza, Events & Development Specialist

With that time of year quickly approaching, I wanted to take a moment to tell you a little bit about our Christmas Program. With your generous support, we at Catholic Charities of Onondaga County are creating hope and providing direct assistance to over 400 Syracuse families every holiday season.

Your partnership is crucial to continuing this initiative and making it a phenomenal success! We are deeply grateful for your commitment to our agency over the years, and hope you will consider helping this program to grow and reach more families in our community. Here are a few ways to help us this year:

  • Gift Cards from any local chain grocery store like Tops or Wegmans, Walmart or Target are welcome.
  • Checks can be mailed to 1654 West Onondaga St, Syracuse, NY 13204, to ensure success of the program and to support families throughout the year. 
  • Give online through our secure online giving system.

Thanks to your contributions, we are able to provide holiday parties for our neighborhood centers and gifts for children in our pre-k and after-school programs. We are also able to facilitate the participation of our clients in the Christmas Bureau, a community-wide partnership that provides Christmas dinners for families, and gifts for children under the age of 16. Your generosity also ensures that we are collectively able to give a happy and plentiful holiday to the clients we serve.

Please note that contributions should be made before December 14th to ensure timely delivery to our clients. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Tino Laterza at or by calling 315-362-7695. Thank you for making the holiday season brighter for so many families in our community.

Wishing you a happy and healthy holiday season.
