Caritas is supported by a strong group of volunteers throughout the country and overseas. From those that sit on our committees to the people that give up eight weeks every year to help process the Lenten appeal, to those involved at the parish and school level. We and the many communities that we are able to help are indebted to all those that give their time and effort to help Caritas provide justice, peace and development.
