Holy Family Catholic Community is supporting area organizations with its annual Holy Family Outreach Grant.

The grant is a tradition at the parish and given to non-profits that serve in Fond du Lac County and provide direct service, education, empowerment, or advocacy to those in our community.

The parish distributed $8,000 in total to local organizations, including: ASTOP, Beacon House, The Arc Fond du Lac, Fond du Lac Literacy Services, Holyland Food Pantry, New Beginnings Pregnancy Care Center, NAMI Fond du Lac and Solutions Center.

“It is a joy to be able to share the Holy Family Outreach Grant with these organizations in our community. At Holy Family Catholic Community, we seek to better the lives of our parishioners and those in the Fond du Lac area through faith and outreach. Supporting these organizations and the benevolent work they do is an important part of this,” Holy Family Catholic Community Pastor Fr. Ryan J. Pruess said.
