Welcome to the 2015 Catholic Social Services'
Archbishop's Christmas Benefit for Children
The Archbishop's Christmas Benefit for Children is an annual fundraising initiative that raises critically needed funds for the continuing support of programs that benefit children suffering from neglect, poverty, and continued abuse. The Archbishop's Christmas Benefit for Children raises money for a variety of programs including after school care, summer academic camps and shelters for women and children. The money raised during this Christmas appeal will help kids all year long!
Your support makes a difference.
For a child, a new school year is a clean slate: a new teacher, the latest textbooks, and a fresh start. It’s our responsibility, as the faithful of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, to ensure that each child is afforded the opportunity to have his or her best year yet. The Out of School Time (OST) Programs of Catholic Social Services (CSS) have proven to be a valuable resource in offering students the resources they need to reach their full potential.
To many parents, OST Programs are crucial, with 90 percent citing that these programs enabled them to obtain and keep employment to help provide for their families. There are still many families who need your help. Your contribution can give students the opportunity to attend OST Programs, providing them with engaging educational opportunities outside of the regular school day.
