Video shows impact of ‘seeing a need’
‘Never see a need without doing something about it’ was one of the sayings of St Mary MacKillop and is what drives us to assist struggling families and individuals in our own community.
With the COVID-19 pandemic causing further hardship for many of our most disadvantaged people, the need has never been greater.
At the same time, charities have faced challenges in their fundraising efforts due to the restrictions on Mass attendance.
But Catholic Charities, the official charity of the Adelaide Archdiocese, continues to receive great support from a loyal and generous Catholic community. This enables it to assist frontline agencies such as Centacare Catholic Family Services, Hutt St Centre, Aboriginal Catholic Ministry, the Deaf Community and schools for children with special needs.
To help spread the word about the good works funded by Catholic Charities, a short video has been produced and updated to give people a glimpse of the impact of their donation.
The video also provides information on the school-focused campaign me4u.
Chair of Catholic Charities Jenny Brinkworth said the video was a great way to find out more about the agencies that the charity helps fund.
“I would like to thank our donors who, despite the difficult times, continue to support Catholic Charities.
“Without this support, we would not be able to ‘see a need’ and do something about it,” she said.
