When disaster strikes, our members are often there to lend a helping hand. Our Branches often hold or participate in fundraisers for members who are in dire need due to a natural disaster or serious illness. Branches can apply for matching funds through the Disaster Relief program.
More recently we’ve raised funds for the Bastrop fire victims and the Haiti earthquake relief. When natural disasters such as fires, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis and other natural disasters, we generally send funds to Catholic Relief Services or Catholic Charities for distribution. While we want to help all in need, our budget is often limited.
