A thousand thanks to everyone who has helped, donated to, volunteered with and supported Catholic Charities and the victims of Hurricane Sandy during the past three weeks. As our partners and stakeholders, we share this important update on relief and recovery efforts.
Catholic Charities, Diocese of Camden, has made the judgment that it is time to phase out relief operations and now pivot and focus on the hard work of disaster recovery. Accordingly, we will close the Wildwood Distribution site, located at Notre Dame de la Mer Parish, as of 3PM on Friday, November 16, 2012.
Sunday, November 18th will be the last day of relief operations at our Northfield site, located on the campus of St. Gianna Beretta Molla Parish.
We will begin providing individual assistance to those impacted by Hurricane Sandy through our Family & Community Services Centers and will soon be coordinating clean-up crews to assist those inside and outside of our Diocese. We will also continue to make special deliveries of relief supplies to parishes and communities.
We will continue to post updated Sandy Recovery information on our website and Facebook page. We encourage you to stay with us and the victims of Hurricane Sandy as the recovery process moves forward. Your help and support are vital during the Sandy Recovery efforts! On behalf of the over 4,000 peopl served since November 3rd through your generosity, we offer prayerful thanks.
The Hurricane Sandy assistance hotline number is still in operation. If you have been affected by Hurricane Sandy please call 856-342-4145.
