These services are provided regardless of religion, race, creed, or socio-economic status.
Donations are needed from across the nation to help in these relief efforts. “This is a time when we need to come together as a nation and church, helping those of our brothers and sisters who are being left vulnerable and in need,” explained Ted Bergh, Chief Executive Officer of Catholic Charities of SW Ohio. “It doesn’t matter where we live, we are all impacted by the damage and suffering caused by this storm.”
