Catholic Charities Diocese of Toledo is collecting donations for disaster relief following the tornadoes that struck cities in Oklahoma. Catholic Charities Diocese of Toledo will direct 100 percent of all donations to Catholic Charities of Oklahoma City.
The Oklahoma agency is assisting at disaster recovery areas and will also provide long-term counseling and case management for families and individuals of all faiths who have been displaced by the tornadoes, said Sonny Wilkinson, associate director for mission advancement for Catholic Charities of Oklahoma City. The agency will provide assistance for at least a few years to help families rebuild their lives, he added.
In November, Catholic Charities Diocese of Toledo collected $116,000 for Catholic Charities agencies providing disaster relief after Hurricane Sandy.
"Our local community responded overwhelming to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy in November and also to help victims of tornadoes that struck our area in 2010," said Rodney Schuster, executive director of Catholic Charities Diocese of Toledo. "For those who would like to help those affected by the recent storms, your generosity is greatly appreciated."
Donations for Oklahoma tornado victims may be sent to or dropped off at Catholic Charities Diocese of Toledo, 1933 Spielbusch Ave., Toledo, OH 43604. Checks should include "Oklahoma disaster relief" in the memo line.
Donations may also be made by credit card by calling (419) 244-6711, ext. 218.
