ALEXANDRIA, Va., Oct. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA), the official domestic relief agency of the U.S. Catholic Church, launched a dedicated disaster donation page with 100 percent of the monies raised going to support people impacted by Hurricane Ian and served by their local Catholic Charities agencies.

"While the scale of Hurricane Ian's impact on our neighbors in Florida and the southeast U.S. will continue to be realized over the next few hours and days, CCUSA is committed to the region for as long as it takes to recover," said Sister Donna Markham, President and CEO of CCUSA. "Catholic Charities staff and volunteers are standing by and ready to respond to the most pressing humanitarian needs as they evolve."

Donations will provide much-needed support -- including shelter, food and other humanitarian needs -- to those impacted by the disaster. Catholic Charities USA will direct 100 percent of the funds raised through this effort to its agencies that are working with residents impacted by Hurricane Ida.
