Gathering 4 Good: Volunteers turn out to pack 2,500 care packages

Email

More than 150 volunteers had registered before Sunday’s Gather4Good activity at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Hastings. Then, another 100 walked in to help pack the 2,500 personal care packages.

Stacie Suedkamp of Catholic United Financial, helping with the registration, seemed in awe of the generosity of the people giving of their time.

“They just keep coming,” she said.

The program is a newer one of Catholic Financial United, begun several years ago.
