Thank you for being a St. Nicholas Partner!

Thank you to the many donors who were St. Nicholas Partners in 2016. Because of you, Catholic Charities of Arkansas received more than $9,000 to help Arkansans in need. Because the needs of the poor seem even greater and more evident at Christmas, St. Nicholas Partners focuses on helping Catholic Charities provide direct services throughout the state.

It is hard knowing that there are families who must always "do without" in order to get by. It is harder knowing that some are forced to "do without" electricity on Christmas morning because they are not getting by at all.

Your contributions benefits these Catholic Charities programs:

  • Family Assistance
  • Services for Victims of Domestic Violence
  • Prison Ministry
  • Disaster Response
  • Immigration Services
  • Refugee Resettlement
  • Adoption Services
  • Westside Free Medical Clinic

We also want to thank the many talented artists in grades 6-12 who took part in our art contest to create the 2016 St. Nicholas Partners' Christmas card. Special thanks goes to first-place winner, Isabel Hortelano, a seventh-grade student at St. John School in Hot Springs. Her design (above) was on the cover of the 2016 Christmas card.

Though Christmas has ended, please keep the spirit of St. Nicholas Partners alive throughout the year. Funding is always needed for all aspects of Catholic Charities' operations. To learn more about how you can help, please contact Bridget Lewis at (501) 664-0340, ext. 379.
