The organization is still assessing the situation, but “ultimately we expect nearly 50 of our local agencies will be providing direct relief to the people who need it most,” said Father Larry Snyder, executive director, in a letter Nov. 2.
He pleaded for donations to help the relief effort, saying donated funds would go toward case management and emergency assistance, cleaning and house repairs, emergency evacuation assistance and long-term recovery needs.
“Thank you in advance for your continued support,” Father Snyder wrote, “and please continue to keep the individuals and families in these impacted areas in your thoughts and prayers.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
