Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of San Antonio assisting evacuees from Hurricane Harvey, seeks donations
Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of San Antonio is currently accepting donations for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. All donations can be dropped off at the Catholic Charities main office at 202 West French Place in San Antonio from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monetary donations are being accepted, and 100 percent of all funds collected will go to the victims of the hurricane. Online donations can also be made to: https://ccaosa.ejoinme.org/HHRelief
In addition, items needed are diapers, blankets, clothing, cases of bottled water, unused pillows, cleaning supplies, hygiene products, gift cards, and non-perishable food items.
Catholic Charities of the archdiocese and its volunteers have assisted more than 1,000 displaced persons in several shelters with thousands of items of clothing, 2,000 packages of diapers, blankets, pillows, and care packages containing bars of soap, toothpaste, and personal hygiene items.
An additional 10,000 evacuees are expected to soon arrive in San Antonio.
Donations of water, food, diapers, and cleaning supplies will also be taken to the Diocese of Corpus Christi later in the week.
J. Antonio Fernandez, president/CEO of Catholic Charities of the archdiocese, emphasizes that the donations are needed not only to assist the hurricane evacuees, but to replenish supplies from the Guadalupe Community Center, which daily serves those in need in the San Antonio community. He added, “I am incredibly proud of the employees and volunteers of Catholic Charities who have been working day and night and have helped thousands of people.”
