Blessing the poor happens year-round. Your Christmas donations through Cross Catholic Outreach will bless those in need of help and hope this Christmas season.

Here’s how it works: the vital items you select and sponsor through this catalog are shipped to poor families with urgent needs. As you will see, our catalog isn’t a collection of quirky items for people who have everything. Instead, it offers you a way to to share your faith and honor a loved one while blessing the desperately poor in developing countries. The gift items below may seem simple or routine by American standards, but they are valued items the poor have difficulty obtaining. Select and sponsor one or more of these gifts, and you will be making a meaningful impact on the life of a needy child or family overseas. When you give on behalf of a friend or loved one, you can also share the joy of Christmas compassion and generosity with them. They’ll be notified that you made this profound gift to the poor on their behalf.
