In Carlinville, Decatur, Effingham and Mattoon
When a helping hand is needed, Catholic Charities provides that hand in many ways. A family may need clothing, a young person may need an outfit for a job interview, a mother may need clothes required for a job, a child may need a coat to keep out the cold. Free help can be arranged when the small fees are not affordable. Donations from the community and volunteer help keep our resale shops open and the stores earn a small income to cover their operating expenses.
