Catholic Charities hosts 'Keep Kids Warm'


Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Youngstown is hosting a special collection to provide winter utility assistance for families in need. The “Keep the Kids Warm” campaign will take place during January which has been designated “Poverty Awareness Month” by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

The campaign assists families who do not qualify for government assistance; families waiting for PIPP (Percentage of Income Payment Plan) Plus to authorize assistance; and families whose HEAP (Home Energy Assistance Program) benefits have been exhausted.

Donations to support “Keep the Kids Warm” may be mailed to Catholic Charities, Keep the Kids Warm, P.O. Box 614, Youngstown, OH 44501. Donations also may be made on the Catholic Charities’ website at
