World Day of the Poor: Donation Drive and Open Houses

What is it?

Pope Francis is calling on Christians around the world to serve the poor with concrete actions that address their daily needs writing in a document launching a New World Day of the Poor that service to them is "an imperative that no Christian may disregard."  The week preceding the World Day of the Poor, he calls us to "let us love - not with words but with deeds."
