Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Youngstown is calling upon Catholics and others of good will to support a special parish and community collection for winter utility assistance for families in need.  The “Keep the Kids Warm” campaign will take place January 9 – 23, 2017. 

“Keep the Kids Warm” assists working poor 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. 

Catholic Charities serves people of all faiths and no faith as resources allow.  Last year, Catholic Charities impacted 5,349 people through its utility assistance efforts across the Diocese of Youngstown.

Donations to support “Keep the Kids Warm” can be sent to:  Catholic Charities, Keep the Kids Warm, P. O. Box 614, Youngstown, Ohio 44501.  Donations can also be made on Catholic Charities’ website at
