Pat and Sandy Corpora Propel ‘Tis the Season’ Appeal Beyond 75% Milestone

In the heart of a spirited Catholic Charities campaign to combat hunger and food insecurity, Pat and Sandy Corpora are a shining example of compassion and philanthropy.  The Corporas answered our appeal by generously donating $15,000 towards our ambitious goal of raising $120,000 for our Community Food Services program. Their years’ long commitment to the Catholic Charities ecumenical soup kitchens has been a beacon of hope for countless individuals in need and has been instrumental in sustaining the soup kitchens.

The Corporas’ donation has not only provided a substantial boost to the campaign but has also pushed the overall fundraising efforts past the crucial 75% milestone. This significant achievement marks a pivotal moment in the journey to lessen hunger in our Diocesan community.  Their continued support serves as a powerful reminder that, together, we can overcome the challenges of hunger and create give compassion and hope to those who are in need.

In the spirit of unity and compassion, we urge you to rally behind the ‘Tis the Season appeal! Every contribution, no matter the size, brings us one step closer to achieving the ultimate goal of raising $120,000 this holiday season. With Pat and Sandy’s exemplary act of kindness leading the way, the appeal is poised to make an even greater impact, turning the collective vision of a hunger-free community into a reality.
