Catholic Charities staff and volunteers fanned out this weekend across neighborhoods still reeling from the devastation inflicted by Hurricane Sandy. They provided information and resources to parishioners at churches in hard-hit neighborhoods in lower Manhattan and Staten Island and offered hands-on support to those still staggering in the hurricane’s aftermath.
Generous donations, large and small, have bolstered our response. Actress Kirstie Alley sent a truckload of goods from the West Coast to the gym at the Staten Island Catholic Charities agency MIV / Mt. Loreto last Friday that are being distributed to impacted families. The following day, Catholic Community Services of Rockland staff and volunteers received much-needed donations of water from Coca-Cola at their Haverstraw emergency food pantry.
Join us to help New Yorkers in need.
