Below are opportunities for almsgiving during Lent. While we can make recommendations, the Path to Sainthood is not directly associated with any of these organizations and we do always recommend due diligence when donating to any organization. All descriptions are directly from the linked organization.

Catholic Relief Services - Rice Bowl
Each Lent, Catholic families across the country unite to put their faith into action through prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Through CRS Rice Bowl, families learn about how our sisters and brothers across the globe overcome hardships like hunger and malnutrition, and how through Lenten alms, we have the power to make the world a better place for all.
Chalice works in impoverished communities to help struggling families overcome the cycle of poverty. Education is the first and most important step in breaking the cycle. Too often, children must skip class or drop out of school to carry water, care for siblings, or earn money for their families.
Sponsorship gives children the support needed to overcome obstacles so they can attend and stay in school, and allows families to provide nutritious food and better care for their children. Children are selected for sponsorship based on need and family circumstances, regardless of race, age, ability, gender, or religion. Education gives every child the opportunity to shine.
Salesian Sisters of Saint John Bosco
Help for Ukraine
The Salesian Sisters of St. Joseph Province invite you to join them in responding to Pope Francis’ invitation to draw “close to the sufferings of the Ukrainian people” in prayer, in fasting, and in concrete gestures of help. Our Salesian Sisters in Ukraine remain among the people, offering shelter especially to mothers and children arriving in the west and exchanging concrete help and encouragement with those still in the east. Our Sisters in Poland and Slovakia are at the borders, translating, welcoming, and providing humanitarian relief and shelter to the refugees.
Those who wish to support the humanitarian and spiritual efforts of these Sisters may do so through the valuable gift of their prayers and, where possible, a monetary donation. We assure you that 100% of any donation earmarked for Ukraine will be sent directly to the Sisters for their efforts to help the people there.
Catholic Relief Services - Urgent Need in Ukraine
Your help is needed in Ukraine where there are already more than 2.9 million people in need of assistance. There is great risk of additional suffering both within Ukraine and for those who may flee to neighboring countries for safety. CRS and our partners need immediate support to meet both ongoing needs, as well as those related to families forced to flee their homes as the situation intensifies.
CRS and Caritas partners on the ground are preparing across Ukraine and in bordering countries, ready to provide safe shelter, hot meals, hygiene supplies, transport to safe areas, counseling support and more.
