In the wake of Hurricane Wilma

which made landfall in Collier county and crossed the state of Florida, Catholic Charities, Diocese of Venice immediately opened five hurricane relief centers for victims of the storm in Lee, Collier and Hendry counties.

The centers provide nonperishable food, water, cleaning supplies, baby items and personal hygiene products, along with other services.

They are accepting donations on their website.

The websites of Catholic Charities in the other affected dioceses (Miami and Palm Beach) as well as Catholic Charities USA have not yet been updated with information about hurricane Wilma.

The Red Cross and the Salvation Army are also assisting victims of this latest disaster (in Florida and in Mexico).
