CSA

2021 CSA Campaign

If you have not received your CSA pledge card for 2021, please call the Parish Office at 248-477-7470, as we have blank cards available.

Our CSA goal for 2021 is $70,574.00. We are asking each family to contribute $285.00 this year to meet our goal. Having said that, we know there are some families who can afford more; and some families who cannot afford anything. That is why we say it is not an equal gift, it is an equal sacrifice. Any amount you can donate would help us get closer to our goal.

It is also important to remind you that any shortfall to the goal of $70,574.00 has to be made up from our savings account. However, any extra we collect over this goal, we get to keep. Your generous support of past CSA efforts at St. Gerald have been most appreciated.

Gifts to the CSA make possible more than 100 ministries, programs, and services that touch the lives of thousands throughout the Archdiocese everyday. No one parish could provide all of these blessings, which benefit so many. Please prayerfully consider the most generous gift possible to support the 2021 Catholic Services Appeal.

Please note the new address on the return envelope is directed to Minnesota. Also, all checks should be payable to The Archdiocese of Detroit-CSA. If you choose to give on-line, go to http://stgerald.aodcsa.org

If you have any questions or concerns,
please do not hesitate to contact the Parish Office at 248-477-7470

~ Thank you for your generosity to the CSA ~


Foster Closet of Oakland County

Who We Are?

The Oakland County Foster Closet offers support services, supplies and aid to children in the foster care system and to those in crisis. It is our mission to foster hope, love and community one child at a time. We are a 501c3 nonprofit taxable organization. We are operated 100% by volunteers; most of them foster families themselves.

What We Do?

Our organization provides clothing, underclothing, toys, shoes, baby equipment, and gear and in some cases furniture to children placed in the foster care system in State of Michigan. These items are new and like new items that have been donated to us. Children are often placed into foster care with no personal items and in many cases they come into care with only the clothes on their back. Our organization provides these kids with stylish new or like new clothing and personal items helping to begin the process of rebuilding their self-esteem and providing them with belongings they can call their own.

How Can We Help?

Our organization helps reduce the financial strain a new placement can place on a foster family by freeing up funds that would otherwise be used to fulfill these immediate needs. These needs are not always met immediately or in full by the State and that is where we step in. Meeting these needs allow foster parents to be able to use the funds saved to help the children adapt to their new home life in other ways. The Oakland Foster Closet is not a “One Stop” shop; you may use it as many times as the need arises.

How Can You Help?
