Catholic Charities earns highest rating from Charity Navigator for good governance and financial responsibility of donor investments.
Pull Quote (200 Character Max): 
“Catholic Charities’ exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” said Michael Thatcher, president and CEO of Charity Navigator.
Story Summary (100 Character Max): 
Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. This is the sixth consecutive year that CCNN has earned this top distinction, which is the highest possible rating and indicates that the organization adheres to sector best practices and executes its mission in a financially efficient way.

As spring is traditionally the time of planting, it also brings to mind the thought of harvesting that labor’s fruits. This passage from the book of Leviticus gives guidance regarding some ethical and community-minded practices:

“When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Leave them for the poor and for the foreigner residing among you.” — Leviticus 23:22

Story Summary (100 Character Max): 
At Catholic Charities, our mission is to provide bread—spiritual, social, and sustenance—to people of all cultures and beliefs through a broad range of services, including food resources, case management, and residential programs. Our St. Vincent’s Food Pantry is a crucial component in our efforts to help feed our community. As the largest food pantry in Northern Nevada, it serves more than 15,000 people per month. Annually, St. Vincent’s Food Pantry distributes more than 300,000 boxes of food for families in need.

The Lord’s prayer, “Give us today our daily bread,” from Matthew 6:11, has been interpreted in various ways. It’s not only a supplication for the nourishment of bread and other food. It also envelops our overall basic needs for good health and well-being—food, shelter, clothing, warmth, and safety.
