Catholic Charities Mobilizes Disaster Response Despite Nor’Easter

Bookmark and Share

Catholic Charities persisted with its disaster-relief mobilization as a nor’easter whipped through the New York region yesterday, dumped a half-foot of snow and took a sucker punch at neighborhoods still reeling from the super storm’s destruction.  Staff continued going door to door by foot and in the Catholic Charities Rusty Staub Mobile Food Pantry to hand out non-perishable food and cleaning supplies to people stricken by the storm.  Catholic Charities, teaming up with FEMA and other first responders, is also manning disaster relief centers that are being established throughout the region.
