PHILADELPHIA, PA--Mercy Hospice, a ministry of Catholic Social Services of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, has been selected by Catholic Charities Appeal (CCA) and The Catholic Foundation of Greater Philadelphia (CFGP) as its official #GivingTuesday beneficiary. This year’s #GivingTuesday observance will be held on December 3, 2019.

Mercy Hospice, part of the Housing and Homeless Services Division of CSS, offers stability and hope to women in recovery from substance abuse. In addition to single women, Mercy Hospice also supports mothers with young children. Women are offered life skills, parenting education, case management, recreational and enrichment programs, in a safe and loving environment.

Those interested in supporting Mercy Hospice on this international day of charity can make a one-time gift or recurring financial contribution through a dedicated link by visiting https://www.catholiccharitiesappeal.org/donate/givingtuesday.

Funds derived from #GivingTuesday will enable Mercy Hospice to purchase basic necessities for its residents including blankets, bed linens, slippers, cookware, flatware, and more. In addition, funds will help with essential infant and toddler items such as diapers, baby blankets, monitors, clothing, pajamas, and toys.

Since 2012, #GivingTuesday has become widely-recognized as a day of giving back to causes that matter most. Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it marks the beginning of the charitable season.
