ENDICOTT (WBNG) -- WBNG 12 News received an award for outstanding media performance at the 85th Catholic Charities anniversary awards and recognition dinner Wednesday evening.

This ceremony awards local businesses and media stations who have helped contribute to Catholic Charities efforts to benefit area communities. It was held at Traditions at the Glen in Endicott.

Executive Director of Catholic Charities Lori Accardi spoke with 12 News about the special ceremony and the mission of Catholic Charities.

“Catholic Charities is very diverse, it is the human services arm of the Catholic Church,” Accardi said. “We provide all kinds of services for youth, seniors, residential programs, for people with special needs who are developmentally disabled or who have mental illness. We try to seek out the poorest among us, and serve those people first.”

The awards dinner ended with a presentation, highlighting the winners and what they have done with Catholic Charities and the community.
