2023 Christmas Blessing Project, Wrapped!
Thank You for your generous support of the 2023 Christmas Blessing project. Between donations received, volunteer hours worked, and seniors served, this was a historic year for the Christmas Blessings Project. This year, with your support, we served 311 seniors, up from 280 served last year. This project is truly a community endeavor that Livingston County Catholic Charities hosts but would not be possible without people like YOU.

Thank YOU to the Supporters of the 2023 Christmas Blessings Project!
