Donations Sought to Support Mission of Catholic Charities to Help the Needy

Newark, NJ, May 21, 2018 –
Gently used clothing, shoes, linens and sheets, books or other small household items that you or your family may no longer need will do much good for people who are less fortunate. The Archdiocese of Newark’s office of Catholic
Charities makes it easy to donate clothing and household goods at collection points throughout the four counties of the Diocese to help
alleviate the suffering of the needy who seek relief through the many operations of Catholic Charities.

Catholic Charities, a not-for-profit social service agency of the Roman Catholic Church within the Archdiocese of Newark, which serves approximately 70,000 individuals and families each year with almost 90 programs, gratefully
accepts donations in new or good condition at numerous drop-off donation bins that will benefit the needy in Bergen, Union, Hudson, and Essex counties. A list of approximately 70 donation bin locations is available on their website at
www.ccannj.com.

Recently, donation bins were added to three Catholic Cemeteries locations: Holy Cross Cemetery in North Arlington, Gate of Heaven Cemetery in East Hanover, and Saint Gertrude Cemetery in Colonia. The office of Catholic Cemeteries,
a Ministry of the Archdiocese of Newark, encourages donations in memory of a deceased loved one.
“Helping the needy is one of the most basic acts of loving kindness, and donating items that are no longer needed on behalf of a departed
loved one is a wonderful gift that truly honors their memory in a tangible way and helps our community in need,” said Andrew P. Schafer, Executive Director of Catholic Cemeteries. “Clothing the naked and sheltering the homeless are among the Corporal Works
of Mercy, as are feeding the hungry, visiting the sick, and burial of the dead,” he added.

The proceeds of all donated items sold directly support Catholic Charities programs for the needy. Recently, proceeds provided vital
funds to purchase 85 new metal-framed beds to replace broken wooden bed frames St. Lucy’s Emergency Shelter, a supervised emergency shelter in Jersey City for single women and men that offers emergency housing, food, and overall care for those for the homeless
throughout the year.

Karen Minutella Reading Initiative installed in the Bayonne Grade School System.  This “Initiative” donates a free book to each and every third grader in the Bayonne Public School System
This year the Bayonne Elks Lodge 434 was very proud to have the Karen Minutella Reading Initiative installed in the Bayonne Grade School System.  This “Initiative” donates a free book to each and every third grader in the Bayonne Public School System.  This was done in memory of our late member Karen Minutella, who was killed in a horrific motorcycle accident and whose last act of Elkdom was to read to third-grade students.  Karen”s fiance Ken Healey came up with this wonderful idea to honor her memory.  On March 1, 2018, Bayonne Elks and other Elks from other lodges joined in with the Bayonne Board of Education and read the book Freckle Juice to all third-grade classes in Bayonne.   
 
This Saturday, May 12, 2018, we will hold our 2nd Annual Karen Minutella Motorcycle Run & Memorial BBQ at the Bayonne Elks Lodge #434, 364 Broadway, Bayonne, New Jersey.  A private group of motorcycle committee members will head out from the Lodge at 11 am recreating Karen’s first solo ride to the Scenic Overlook on Route 78 and return @ approximately 1:00 pm to a BBQ to raise funds for next year’s program and donation.
