ignite Lenten  Outreaches

  • Thank you to the Ignite Youth Group that recently held a rummage sale to benefit local charities.   Catholic Charities was delighted to receive 10 beautiful Easter Baskets from the youth group.  The teens put aside child friendly new items donated to the rummage sale.  They were able to fill 10 Easter Baskets with the goods they gathered and then added Easter Candy, coloring books and crayons to complete the baskets. 
    These baskets were delivered to children at Linkages, the transitional housing facility for homeless families run by Catholic Charities in Tinton Falls.  These families are assisted with job training and skills, counseling and schooling to transition to permanent housing after a year in the Linkages Program. 
    The baskets the youth group prepared are sure to put big smiles on little faces on Easter Morning!
    Thank You!
