News and Events

In order to better protect the health of our clients, volunteers and staff, Catholic Charities of Tompkins/Tioga has closed our free clothing closets, located at our Ithaca office, 324 West Buffalo Street, and our Nichols office, 139 Roki Boulevard, effective immediately until further notice.

We will not be accepting donations for clothing or housewares during that time.

Our food pantry at our Nichols office is open, Tuesday through Friday from 9am-Noon and from 1pm-3pm.  The afternoon hours will be for curbside pick-up.

We have also suspended walk-ins at both offices and ask that anyone seeking assistance please call ahead to make an appointment.  We will do intakes and fill out paperwork for many of our regular services over the phone instead of in person.

If you work for a social service agency, kindly make this clear to your participants when making referrals.

Our phone number for both offices is 607-272-5062.

We will be locking our front doors and asking health-screening questions to anyone seeking help.  We ask that people ring the door bell and use our intercom system at the front door.

Despite these precautions, we will continue to serve low income people.  We know that these will be difficult economic times for many people as they face reduced hours and lay-offs at work.

People who are struggling still need your solidarity.  We hope and trust that you will continue to stand with our neighbors in need.  Thank you for being part of Catholic Charities!

Prudence, care and love will get us through this together.
