This year’s El Paso Giving Day will be held on October 21, 2021, but the fun begins with Early Giving on October 14th! Our goal is to raise $10,000 to support the work of Sister Silvia at Santa Teresa Catholic Church in Ft. Hancock.
Walmart has made a generous donation to El Paso Giving Day providing matching funds of $100,000 for organizations to earn. UNIQUE gifts of $100 or less made on October 21 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. MST are eligible to be matched 100 percent by Walmart until the $100,000 in matching funds are exhausted.
Give during the Brown Bag Power Hour from 12 - 1 PM on October 21 and the Catholic Foundation could win big. The three organizations (small, medium, large) that receive the MOST online unique verified donations during the designated time will win $1,000 each. The hour is sponsored by TFCU.
In honor of our clergy and religious—priests, deacons, religious brothers and sisters—the 2021 recipients of the Catholic Foundation's Dei Gratia Award, we're raising funds to support the ministry of Sister Silvia Chacón at Santa Teresa Catholic Church in Ft. Hancock.
Sister Silvia fills every role required to run a church, including catechetical leader, parish life coordinator, confirmation coordinator, choir director and ministry trainer. When needed, she even becomes a handywoman, repairing items and church pews.
Built in 1928, Santa Teresa Catholic Church is in need of many repairs. But what Sister Silvia wants most for the people in the community are classrooms for the children to meet, learn, draw, create, pray, and come together.
Click here to donate at 8:30am or 12 Noon on October 21.
