Catholic Charities of West Tennessee is collecting funds to support tornado relief efforts in the Oklahoma City area.
“Devastating tornadoes have impacted our neighbors only 400 miles away over the past two days and we as a community want to help,” said Mike Allen, President / CEO of Catholic Charities of West Tennessee.
“Our sister agency Catholic Charities of Oklahoma City is already in action on the front lines providing disaster relief and support and this is our way to assist the people of West Tennessee in showing their support,” said Allen.
Catholic Charities of West Tennessee is accepting cash, check and credit card donations at their main office located at 1325 Jefferson, Memphis. TN 38104, or through their secure website at ccwtn.org.
All donations should be clearly marked “OK Tornado Relief.” In addition, Pastors at the 47 parishes of the Catholic Diocese of Memphis will be asked to support relief efforts with their congregations this weekend.
