Wrapped with Love, formerly known as “JoyFul Giving for Families,” allows Support Circle and Pride for Parents families to purchase donated Christmas Gifts for their immediate household families for a nominal fee. Not only does this provide clients the opportunity and dignity to select Christmas gifts for loved ones, but the funds raised from the sales go back to the emergency assistance program, creating a dual impact!

Volunteers play a very important role in the services that Catholic Charities provide. Volunteers work with poor and vulnerable families of all faith traditions, and quite a few only Speak Spanish.

Throughout our 5 regions we have volunteers working in the following capacities: filing, reception, working in the food pantry (stocking shelves with food, organizing and implementing logistics for food donations and distribution), entering data, and organizing donated clothes.

Volunteers can also be trained to assist with our Family Support Services program. Some responsibilities include: conducting screening interviews to identify clients’ needs, assisting in the ESL or GED classes, assisting with resume writing, and working in the childcare area.

To find out how you can volunteer, please contact the Raleigh Regional Office at 919-790-8533.
