Archdiocese of Detroit Collects For Typhoon Victims
Following the devestating impact of Super Typhoon Haiyan, which hit the Philippines yesterday, the Red Cross is estimating that the death toll may exceed 1,000, while multiple thousands have been left without homes, clean water, food, electricity, phone lines and other necessities.
The Archdiocese of Detroit is collecting funds for relief in the Philippines on behalf of Catholic Relief Services, the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic Church in the United States. Since before the storm, CRS has been mobilizing its resources to reach those in the path of the storm.
Those wishing to donate to relief efforts through the Detroit Archdiocese can visit www.aod.org to donate online, or send check by mail to:
Archdiocese of Detroit
CRS Relief Efforts
1234 Washington Boulevard
Detroit, MI 48226
Checks should be made out to the Archdiocese of Detroit, and should indicate “Philippines Typhoon” in the memo line.
