St. Nicholas Project

A year-round initiative to the most vulnerable families
in New York City and neighboring communities.


The St. Nicholas Project includes the many Catholic Charities holiday programs offered throughout the New York Archdiocese to thousands of needy families and individuals of all religions.

With your continued support, we are able to provide families with these basic necessities for a more joyous Christmas and throughout the year. 

Generous donors, volunteers, parish groups and corporate teams distribute winter coats, hats, gloves, scarves, sweaters, blankets and more to families who otherwise would go without during this blessed season.

Remember…need has no season! In addition to providing help at Christmas, our St. Nicholas Project enables people in need to access a continuum of services throughout the year.​​

For questions, please contact or call 646-794-2436.


How does the St. Nicholas Project Help?

We help more than 4,000 individuals by providing them with essential items for the winter season and critical training and supplies throughout the remaining seasons.

Young Professionals Making a Difference

The success of the St. Nicholas Project is made possible with the support of our sponsors and the Junior Board.

Throughout the year, the Junior Board introduces young professionals to the varied programs and works of Catholic Charities through volunteer opportunities, social gatherings, faith-based events, and philanthropic support. The Junior Board helps cultivate the next generation of leaders committed to Catholic Charities and serving those in need in our community.
