Hurricanes Florence and Michael have had a devastating effect on many. When a natural disaster occurs in the United States and its territories, donations can be made to Catholic Charities USA, which ensures that 100% of donations go to the local organizations providing assistance. They and their member agencies respond to immediate emergency needs for such necessities as water, food, shelter and medical care, as well as to the long-term need to rebuild and recover after widespread destruction. To support the relief efforts in the Carolinas, Georgia and Florida, please visit here. We will also have a special second collection on the weekend of October 27 – 28.
