COVID-19 Services/Response:

Our thanks to the remarkable staff, partners, donors, and volunteers who are helping us meet the needs of those least able to navigate these unprecedented circumstances. We are in your debt.

Service Update:

  • For urgent needs, please call 312-655-7700
  • Meals to go are available at Congregate Meal sites and Senior Centers. Catholic Charities has suspended all senior group activities and adult day care amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Our home care services continue, and are following a more sophisticated protocol as there are seniors who have no one to drop off groceries and provide basic hygiene assistance.
  • Food pantries and evening meal programs will continue to provide food depending on supplies and safe distribution protocols. Please check under Our Services/Emergency Services for locations and phone numbers.
  • Counseling, case management, and other services that can be provided remotely are being delivered accordingly. Please call your case worker or program contact if you need assistance.

How You Can Help:
Due to COVID-19 exposure risks, we are unable to take donations of clothing or food from individuals or groups at this time.  

  • Please consider a contribution. The need for financial assistance and program support for those who were only just making ends meet will grow significantly with lost wages and other impact from the pandemic.
  • Masks, hand sanitizer, paper towels, or bleach wipes are needed and can be dropped at any Catholic Charities location. 
  • When shopping on Amazon, please use Amazon Smile and choose Catholic Charities so we might benefit from your purchase. 
  • Volunteers needed to pack food at pantries.  If you are not in a high risk category and are willing to help, please email Andrew McKernin at amckernin@catholiccharities.net. Protective gear provided. Health protocols enforced. 
  • Thank the human service workers, first responders, and grocery/gas station/coffee vendors in your life and when you see them in action.

 Home Parties

d'Vine @ Home Parties

Host Your Own d'Vine @ Home Party

In preparation for the 19th Annual Catholic Charities d'Vine Affair you can host a Wine Tasting Party in your home in support of the 2020 event. This year our goal is to raise $25,000 at home parties which will help to underwrite the January event. 


What is a Home Tasting Party?

Parties are hosted in the homes of our supporters (or in local restaurants) and feature a tasting of nine premium wines. Monetary donations are collected in support of the d'Vine Affair which supports Catholic Charities' Self-Sufficiency Programs. 


When are they held?

Parties can be held anytime throughout the year.


At the party

Encourage your guests to attend the d'Vine Affair on Sunday, January 26, 2020 at the Union League Club of Chicago. Special reservation forms allow your guests to purchase their tickets at your tasting, for the discounted price of $100 per person… a $50 savings!

You may conduct the tasting anyway you wish; serve the wines one at a time or make them all available for your guests to taste at will.

Please call Dave Gardner at (312) 655-7907 if you would like to host a party and discuss any further questions about your role as host. 


After the party

An envelope addressed to Catholic Charities will be given to you so that the donations can be easily sent to the offices of Catholic Charities to be deposited. Wine glasses can be kept as a gift or returned to the main offices at 721 N. LaSalle, Chicago, IL. 60654. Guests will receive an acknowledgment letter for their tax purposes for any contribution made to the cause.


What are the host duties in advance of the party

Select a party date. Then invite your friends. Invitation samples and templates are available, but please feel free to format the invitations in your own style.

Be creative when planning the details for your party. For example, you may choose to plan a simple wine and cheese garden party, a fall buffet, or create a meal around the different wines.

Explain to your invitees that they will be treated to a tasting of nine fine wines courtesy of Louis Glunz Wines and that this is a fundraising party for Catholic Charities upcoming d'Vine Affair. Ask each guest to make a donation to support the event they are attending. No minimum contribution is set for your guests.

Plan hors d'oeuvres, tapas, or food of your choice that will be complimented by fine wine. Hosts will be provided with the following materials to distribute to guests:

  • 9 bottles of premium wines per 12 guests
  • Printed descriptions of the wines
  • d'Vine Affair tasting glasses
  • Special d'Vine Affair reservation forms for the event on Sunday, January 26, 2020, at the discounted price of $100 per person.
  • Beer, hosts may choose to include some select Import and Craft Beers to their tasting. Please inquire for more details!
