Foundation gives $1,000 to St. Vincent de Paul Place & Catholic Charities

Catholic Charities and St. Vincent de Paul Place each are recipients of $1,000 in charitable grant funds distributed by the Bodenwein Public Benevolent Foundation.

St. Vincent de Paul Place will use the funds for its food pantry, while Catholic Charities will use its award for emergency basic needs and intensive case management.

The Bodenwein Public Benevolent Foundation has distributed $25,000 in grants to 19 nonprofit organizations in the region this year. Last year, the foundation awarded $100,000 in grants.

The foundation, the philanthropic part of The Day newspaper, has awarded more than $12 million since its inception in 1938. Its mission is to support and promote quality educational, cultural, human services and health care programming for underserved populations.
