Thoughts and Prayers after Hurricane Irma
In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, my thoughts and prayers are with you and all those impacted in our community by this catastrophic event. I hope you and your family and friends are safe.
Because you are a dear friend of Camillus House, I wanted to bring you up to date on our situation:
We're still working to assess the damage from flooding, downed trees that require removal, electrical problems and other hurricane-related issues, at our main campus and our other facilities. At this point, we estimate storm preparations and recovery costs will be in the tens of thousands of dollars, and our reserves of water, food, towels and blankets have been significantly depleted. While there are many needs in our community, we are grateful for any help we receive to get back to normal.
Many are hurting in our community right now, and, more than anything, I want you to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. This is a trying time for all of us, but together, with God's grace and an attitude of compassion toward one another, we will get through it.
May God bless you,
Brother Raphael Mieszala, OH

P.S. Because of the storm, we're also in need of towels, sheets, clothing (especially men's), men's and women's undergarments, and personal hygiene items. Donations can be brought to the main Camillus House campus from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily. Thank you!
