Make a Difference: Catholic Charities
Who: U.S. Navy veteran's family with one 6-year-old child and a baby on the way.
Agency: Catholic Charities, 331 Main St., Norwich, CT 06360.
Their situation: A veteran of the U.S. Navy, stationed in New York and currently residing in Groton with his family, had to be discharged for health reasons and is currently unemployed. He and his wife are the proud parents of a little boy, age 6, and another baby on the way.
