A trustworthy group to help victims of Hurricane Harvey

Catholic Charities is a trustworthy group to whom contributions to help victims of Hurricane Harvey are being accepted.  Their work continues from their local offices long after other helping groups have left.  Share this information far and wide.

With Washington in recess, our nation joins in prayer and solidarity with those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. While the threat continues, please pray for those still in danger and those doing the heroic work of helping those in need.

Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA), the official domestic relief agency of the Catholic Church, is working in conjunction with the local Catholic Charities agencies to assist families and individuals impacted by the hurricane.
Here is how you can help:
Pray: God of hope and mercy, we lift up to you all victims of Hurricane Harvey, and those responding with assistance and aid. Protect all who are in any form of danger; provide practical help to all those in need; strengthen the weary; console the grieving and heal the suffering; and bless those engaged in disaster relief efforts with safety and courage. Help all people of goodwill to respond with compassion and generous hearts. Amen.
Give: Help relief efforts in wake of Hurricane Harvey by texting CCUSADISASTER to 71777 or click below. You can also give by calling 1-800-919-9338 or by mail: PO Box 17066 Baltimore, MD 21297-1066 and put "Hurricane Harvey" in the memo line of the check. Funds raised will go towards Catholic Charities agencies' efforts to assist families and individuals with shelter, food, and other immediate and long-term recovery needs.
We thank you for your time and generosity.
Faith and the Common Good
