In-kind Gifts and Donations

Catholic Family Center is humbled by the generosity of our city as we work together to bring hope to the vulnerable and those facing poverty.

 

How to Make an In-kind Gift or Donation

Because our storage space is limited, we ask that you try to give donations based on our seasonal needs.

For all other out of season donations, we’ve partnered with Saint’s Place; just off South Main Street in Pittsford. Saint’s Place will accept furniture and household items on Catholic Family Center's behalf to provide Rochester refugees with a welcoming and sustainable home.
