Center for Social Concern

Help Those Affected by Hurricanes Fiona and Ian

Catholic Charities is offering all sorts of material aid to those affected by recent hurricanes in Puerto Rico and Florida. Directly donating water, food, clothing, etc. is best done by those who have quicker access to trusted distribution centers. Donating money to organizations such as Catholic Charities and the American Red Cross is far more effective. Thanks for your willingness to show solidarity! 

Get Involved through Campus Ministry's Center for Social Concern

If you keep up with the news, it's easy to get cynical and try to hide from the world. Faith calls us to the opposite response: hope and action. Feed the hungry. Shelter the homeless. Care for the sick. Tutor the kids who need help. Protect the vulnerable. Care for God's creation. Learn more about social problems. Lobby political and economic leaders to make positive changes. You can answer your call by getting involved in the multitude of CSC opportunities.
