Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 16, 2008
In the wake of Hurricane Ike destruction, Houston-based Catholic Charities (http://www.catholiccharities.org), a non profit social and health service organization serving over 100,000 Houston-area residents, is working to bring food and water to displaced and affected community members.
On Tuesday, September 16th at 9am several dozen Catholic Charities staff and volunteers began the clean up of the main facility to ensure that their services have a strong home base in Houston.
Another group of volunteers have started loading food and water to transport to Dickinson, TX for emergency food distribution to those most affected by Hurricane Ike. Catholic Charities will leave for Bacliff, TX at 9am and then move on to Dickinson, TX by 2pm Tuesday, September 16th.
Donations for Hurricane Ike are urgently needed to assist with recovery efforts. Donations can be made online at http://www.catholiccharities.org.
