Hurricane Matthew Response

Catholic Charities is responding across the Diocese, from Wilmington to Windsor, to help families impacted by Hurricane Matthew.  We are providing food gift cards, baby items, toiletry kits, and cleaning supplies to help families recover from this tragic event.  As families begin to recover, we will provide assistance to help them through the challenging process of finding permanent shelter.  Please consider making a monetary donation to our Disaster Services program, which is currently assisting Hurricane Matthew victims.  Monetary donations will allow us the most flexibility to meet the varying needs of families impacted by the storm.  If you would like to make a non-cash donation of goods, please contact Gabby Amos at (919) 821 – 9750 or

2O17 Catholic Charities Appeal

To support these services, please consider participating in the 2017 Catholic Charities appeal.
