When a natural disaster occurs in the United States and its territories, electronic donations may be made to Catholic Charities USA, which assures us that 100% of donations go to the local aid organizations. They and their member agencies respond to immediate emergency needs for such necessities as water, food, shelter and medical care, as well as to the long-term need to rebuild and recover after widespread destruction.
They also assist the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops with pastoral and reconstruction needs of the Church. Their address information follows:
