Catholic Charities of Buffalo is gearing up for its 88th annual Appeal drive.
Bishop Edward Kmiec announced a $10.6 million goal for the 2012 Appeal at the South Buffalo Food Pantry Wednesday.
Sister Mary McCarrick is the diocesan director of Catholic Charities. She noted that through food pantries and numerous other services, Catholic Charities is meeting needs every day.
"We want to provide the basic of food. We also wants to do other things that enhance and improve the lives of some of our needy residents in Western New York," said McCarrick.
