UPDATE: Ecuador Earthquake Relief Efforts

catholic charities of dallas2Last week, Catholic Charities of Dallas and the Latin Diversity Network of American Airlines rapidly responded to the urgent needs of the victims of the recent earthquake in Ecuador.

Materials were collected at their Marillac Center and went out late Thursday to be shipped. Both organizations had just shy of four days to gather materials from the public such as blankets, toiletries, first aid kits, and baby items. Catholic Charities of Dallas also donated 100 food boxes to further the mission.

St. Jude Chapel in Dallas, St. Ann Parish in Coppell, and Mother of Perpetual Help Vietnamese Catholic Church, all contributed to the relief efforts. A very big thanks to donors such as you, who answered the call on such short notice. Your donations give hope to those in need and let them know they are not alone during this difficult time!
