A Season for Giving:
Supporting Bea's Kids

Joe Catholic has chosen to support Bea's Kids, a non-profit organization that serves "at risk" children in our local community. Bea's Kids provides safe after-school environments for students to study and receive assistance with homework, reading and standardized tests. Bea's Kids has been recognized and honored by Presidents Clinton and Bush, as well Oprah.

According to Cathy Foxworth, Bea's Kids' Board Chair and St. Catherine parishioner, the group could use:
Our Dallas Tutoring Center still needs families adopted. If you do not have any shoppers in your group (or Shopper Spouses), your group can provide gift cards in $25 increments to be used at Fiesta, Kroger, Wal-mart or Target for food at Christmas to make family dinner.
Foxworth went on to say that "if you raised at least $200, that would feed 8 families." We've already raised half that amount in one donation. I think between the men who attend the gatherings and those of you that read this blog, we can raise $1000 for this worthy cause.

Please consider donating to this worthwhile organization. You can make a one time donation or even make weekly donations through their B12 initiative. You can make either type of donation  at their DONOR PAGE. Please remember to tell them that Joe Catholic sent you.
