ABIDE gives Catholic teens from across Massachusetts and New England the chance to come together as a community of faith to ACKNOWLEDGE Christ’s Good Friday sacrifice, SERVE those in need in our community, PRAISE our God, and RAISE MONEY for Catholic charities.
Due to the Covid pandemic, we have restructured a bit. In addition to going virtual, and extending our event throughout Lent, we are also asking our teens to participate in a RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS Challenge! With each act, we spread kindness in our world, and share the word about the work we are doing.
If you received one of our Random Acts of Kindness cards, thanks for coming to check us out! We are a 100% volunteer run 501c3 charitable organization who was able to donate over $13,000 to charities with excellent ratings through last year's event, including Cor Unum, Catholic Charities, Delamano and Rosie's Place. You can learn more about these organization on our website.
This year’s funds will be donated to charities that support covid-19 related issues, as well as those that support the poor (who are disproportionately impacted by the outbreak).
Teens are encouraged to have a personal goal of at least $250 in sponsorships for their sacrifice and service.
Thank you for your contribution... no matter if it is $10 or $10,000, every bit helps to build our communities and support our youth!
