Throughout the Archdiocese of Baltimore, several groups have worked to assist victims of Hurricane Sandy.
On Dec. 9, Loyola University Maryland hosted a Christmas Basketball Classic to raise money for those impacted by the hurricane. Many of the Baltimore college’s students and alumni are from areas hardest hit by the storm, so the fundraiser, which included the sale of Hounds for Hope bracelets to benefit the American Red Cross, was especially meaningful.
On Dec. 5, 36 students and four chaperones from the Institute of Notre Dame traveled to Toms River, N.J. to volunteer with Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian Relief organization. Even School Sister of Notre Dame Hilda Marie Sutherland, who is more than 80 years old, made the trip to help hurricane victims get back on their feet. IND also donated water, hygiene products and baby supplies to the relief efforts.
If you’re looking to donate money this holiday season to help hurricane victims, St. Casimir’s Savings Bank has partnered with the Maryland Bankers Association (MBA) and the American Red Cross to assist in the response and recovery efforts of those affected by the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. Through Dec. 31, 100 percent of donations received by St. Casimir’s Savings Bank will be donated to the American Red Cross and will be used to prepare for and provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance in response to the Hurricane Sandy disaster.
Please contact the following St. Casimir’s Savings Bank representative for branch hours and locations.
