Catholic Charities Fort Worth is making an unusual public call for donations, saying they aren’t able to help everyone requesting assistance following last month’s winter storm along with those seeking help amid the ongoing pandemic.

The long-serving nonprofit said they are in urgent need of funds and that they’ve had to put thousands of individuals and families on a 2-3 month waitlist for help. What’s worse is that they’ve had to stop accepting applications for help until they can get caught up.

CCFW said they need $4.2 million to serve existing clients, excluding the most recent people who reached out for the first time.
