We are so grateful for the generous people in our community that are able to help us in our mission of assisting the less fortunate. In early May, we received a bequest from George and Dorothy Fox for $110,000 to go towards our poverty assistance programs!

 It was great spending time with some of George and Dorothy's family members (pictured above) and hearing how passionate the couple was about helping others. George and Dorothy were dedicated parishioners of St. Rose of Lima and very active in their faith. Dorothy volunteered in the community, and both she and George were passionate about helping the poor. We are incredibly humbled that they chose to leave such a generous gift for Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada, which we will use to honor their memory in our work of easing the pain of poverty for individuals and families in need.
