Memphis, TN – September 10, 2012 – Catholic Charities of West Tennessee (CCWTN) today announced plans to participate in the annual United Way of the Mid-South “Day of Caring” on Friday, September 14th. Volunteers from Memphis locations of Cargill Inc., will partner with CCWTN to help distribute food to the hungry of Memphis.

For this week’s distribution, twenty (20) families of students of Resurrection School (one of the Jubilee Schools of the Catholic Diocese of Memphis) in the Hickory Hill area of Memphis will be served provisions including meats, fresh produce and canned foods. Approximately 75% of the families served this week will be Hispanic and each family served falls at or below the Federal poverty level.

It also partners with The Mid-South Food Bank to obtain low cost foods for distribution in West Tennessee. Last week, The Mid-South Food Bank named CCWTN’s Food Pantry as its Food Pantry of the Year for 2012.

It is one of the largest nonprofit, multi-social service providers in the Mid-South with special emphasis in the areas of homelessness, immigration services, community counseling and emergency services.
