Carbon County Catholic Worker Fund

The Catholic Worker image

The Carbon County Catholic Worker Fund was established with an initial gift from the Catholic Worker Movement and the Carbon County Catholic Worker founder, Ericka Williams-Rodriguez.  Donations to this fund are held by the Carbon County Community Foundation and then distributed to the Carbon County Catholic Worker organization through grants to support their work in the community.  Carbon County Catholic Worker reports back to the Community Foundation on the expenditure of funds to ensure that donor dollars are being used for their intended, charitable purpose.

Inspired by Dorothy Day, Peter Maurin, and the Catholic Worker Movement’s lives and works, Carbon County Catholic Worker provides charitable services for those in need, including food pantry services, educational services, and spiritual counseling.  The organization also hosts cultural and other events for the community.

The Carbon County Catholic Worker Fund supports the programs and operating costs of the Dorothy Day House of Hospitality and a new Community Center it plans to open at the restored Our Lady of Angels School in Lansford, PA.

Call for volunteers! We need volunteers! Drivers, a grant-writer, a plumber, and a roofing company – if you can help, please contact us at dorothydaycarboncounty@gmail.com, 908-357-8858 or on our Facebook page.
