Timing is everything, so the old saying goes, and the front-page story about Catholic Charities reinforces that fact. Not only did we read the discouraging news that Catholic Charities has not achieved this year’s goal but that the executive director is retiring at the end of the year. In addition, he made that announcement to his entire staff last week. That news is a separate story completely.
And to my fellow donors, who are you hurting by withholding a pledge this year – only the people who can’t live or work as you and I do. So, why don’t you dig a bit deeper and help Charities to assist others and reinforce the adage that this is the Western New York of good neighbors.
