November 16, 2018

Catholic disaster services working the 2018 Camp and Woolsey fires.  If you know of more, please email communications@cacatholic.org with contact information:

  • Northern Valley Catholic Social Services, part of the Diocese of Sacramento, is providing extensive relief efforts – especially in their Adopt-A-Family program and, more immediately, through gift cards so that evacuees can purchase necessities now.
  • The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, which operates in many parishes across the nation, also coordinates relief through its Disaster Services branch.  You can follow their efforts on the Twitter feed.
  • The Archdiocese of Los Angeles is providing support to the communities affected by the Woolsey and Hill fires through Catholic Charities of Los Angeles and local parishes and schools. Donations can be made here.
  • Those wishing to help victims of the Camp Fire can donate at this site provided by the Diocese of Sacramento. Those in immediate need of temporary shelter, food or assistance fires can contact their parish for support services.
