Raise the Roof to Ease Poverty Event
We are so excited about our third annual Raise the Roof event on Saturday, September 10, 2022 from noon-2pm. KBUL on-air personality and Catholic Charities supporter, JJ Christy will perch atop our building braving the elements until we raise $150,000 to help fund our poverty assistance programs.
Catholic Charities has seen a 50% increase in need, and the numbers continue to build daily. Because of the kindness of our community, we have been able to be the safety net for individuals and families as the pandemic continues to affect their ability to put food on the table, pay rent and utilities and simply meet their basic needs. Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada is addressing the root causes of poverty by encountering and accompanying those living in poverty on a journey to economic equality and the realization of a meaningful and purposeful life. Your support of our Raise the Roof event will allow us to continue to provide services to those trying to survive and then thrive.
We will be hosting an outdoor BBQ in conjunction with JJ’s stay on our roof and will be offering tours of our programs. We would love for you to visit our campus at 500 E. Fourth Street and see our work first hand. Please consider sponsoring this event with a sponsorship or donation, your support is vital for us to continue to do the work we do. If you are not able to sponsor this year, we would still love to have you attend our outdoor BBQ in the back parking lot at 500 E. Fourth St. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under.
