Hurricane Harvey...How you can help.

The greatest need for survivors of Hurricane Harvey right now is money, which can quickly go to work to support the initial rescue and recovery efforts and then serve as a foundation for long term recovery efforts. In time, there will be a need for non-cash material items (clothing, furniture, kitchen goods, etc.).

That time is not now, though. The real need now is for cash.

There are several ways you can help.....

1. Father Michael Johnston, Diocesan Administrator, has asked parishes of the Diocese of Nashville to take up a special collection on the weekend of September 2-3 and/or September 9-10 with all funds collected to be forwarded to Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA) which will distribute funds collected directly to the affected dioceses (and their respective Catholic Charities agency) to address the local needs arising from the storm.

As part of this effort, you may also make a donation directly to the Diocese of Nashville for this collection by clicking on this link: https://www.dioceseofnashville.com/hurricane-harvey-special-collection to make an on-line donation via the page's secure site. Checks may be mailed to: Diocese of Nashville, ATTN: Hurricane Harvey Special Collection, 2800 McGavock Pike, Nashville, TN 37214.

2. The Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops has set up a page on its website offering links to each of the dioceses -- and affiliated Catholic Charities agencies. This link (https://txcatholic.org/harvey/) allows you to choose a specific geographic part of the impacted area to which you wish to direct your funds. ~ Choosing to donate to one of these options will put your donation dollars to work faster.

3. Finally, you may wish to make a donation directly to Catholic Charities USA by going to https://app.mobilecause.com/vf/CCUSADISASTER. Funds received by CCUSA, as noted above, will be distributed directly to the affected dioceses (and their respective Catholic Charities agency) to address the local needs arising from the storm.

Thank you for your generosity and concern! Please continue to keep the Hurricane Harvey survivors in your prayers. As we know from our 2010 flood experience, they have a long road to recovery ahead of them. May the souls of the victims rest in peace.
