Annual CCHD collection Nov. 21-22

The annual Catholic Campaign for Human Development collection will be taken up in parishes the weekend of Nov. 21-22. The campaign is the domestic anti-poverty, social justice program of the U.S. Catholic bishops.

Its mission is to address the causes of poverty in America through the promotion and support of community-controlled self-help organizations.

Nine East Bay organizations that advocate for people on the margins, including homeless youth, disabled people, senior citizens and those living in economically challenging communities, received $285,000 in grants funded from last year's collection.

To see of a video of CCHD funds at work, visit www.cchdeastbay.org. It is possible to donate to the Catholic Campaign for Human Development in the Diocese of Oakland by writing a check or money order to Catholic Charities of the East Bay, writing "For CCHD" in the memo line. Send it to: Catholic Campaign for Human Development, c/o Catholic Charities of the East Bay, 433 Jefferson St., Oakland, CA 94607.
