How Can I Help?
Archdiocese of Portland:
In addition to prayers and spiritual support, our parishes affected by fires need resources now and in the future. The Southern Vicariate specifically needs the following:
- Financial donations to provide food and shelter to evacuees
- Financial donations to Sacred Heart Catholic School to keep the school open until they reestablish themselves after the crises
- Grocery store gift cards for evacuees (Albertsons, Safeway, Trader Joe's, Walmart, WinCo)
Please direct all contributions to Mrs. Carmen C. Gaston, Director of Mission Advancement - Wildfires, Archdiocese of Portland, 2838 E. Burnside, Portland, Oregon 97214.
Catholic Charities is doing its part to relieve the suffering of those who have been impacted by these fires – across Western Oregon. Together, we are supporting evacuation/community centers with food boxes, clothing, and other essential items, while also helping individuals and families with direct financial assistance so they can endure these incredibly challenging times.
