A special "THANKS" goes out to the contractors and crews listed below who helped make our new storage building a reality! Many donated their time, reduced their fees, or increased their services/warranties to help us complete this project. Also, a "Thanks" to Larry  Casino, our "Special Volunteer", who left us money to support the building of this project.

2016 Breakdown of Direct Assistance :

​Where the money YOU donate goes:

Grace Harris, 2014 Intern, helps unload boxes of socks that were collected by these young ladies for "Socktoberfest."  So many people in our area had warm feet thanks to these hard working young ladies.

Several classes at Holy Spirit Catholic School wanted to gather coats to give to people who did have any.  We were so happy they brought them to us for distribution.  It's always nice to open your coat closet and let someone choose their own coat.  

Catholic Social Services of West Alabama is fortunate to have the support of our wonderful community. If you would like to take an active role helping others there are many ways you can help. Whether it is performing volunteer work, organizing a fund raising event, or making a donation, your efforts will be sincerely appreciated.
