Postcards and Pizza Parties
Join us on April 8, April 15, April 22, and April 29 any time between 5:00 – 7:30 p.m. or on April 16 any time between 12:00 – 1:30 p.m. to write postcards and eat some pizza with other supporters at our Main Office, located at 3710 E. 20th Avenue.
We are using these postcards to voice support of homeless services and asking Alaska’s elected officials to do so too. Learn more about the cuts! Together, we can make a difference for Anchorage and those in our community experiencing homelessness. Call 907-222-7335 to RSVP today!
The Global Village Experience
Celebrate the beauty, wonder, and joy in our global village on Saturday, April 27, beginning at 2:00 p.m. at Grow North Farm, located 3543 Mountain View Drive. Participants will dance down the street to music from around the world and listen to stories from different cultures. Learn more!
This event is free and open to the public. It is the result of an 18-month project between the Anchorage Concert Association, Catholic Social Services Refugee Assistance & Immigration Services (RAIS), L.A.-based Lula Washington Dance Theatre, Mountain View Boys & Girls Club, and many Alaskans. Like their Facebook Page to stay updated. See you there!
The 29th Annual Catholic Social Services’ Wilma Carr Charity Ball will be Saturday, May 11, 2019! Participants will enjoy a Venetian masquerade, providing an evening of music, dancing, and masques – a fabulous event for a great cause. The doors open at 5:30 p.m. at the Hotel Captain Cook.
This year, our “Together We Can” campaign, a feature of each Charity Ball, will focus on St. Francis House Food Pantry. As Alaska’s largest client-choice pantry, we respect each shopper’s right to choose their own food. Accordingly, we believe that food should be displayed in a way that dignifies their shopping experiences. Stay tuned to learn more!
We need your help to put on these events! If you are interested in volunteering or want to know how you can lend a hand, please call 907-222-7335.
