Given the extent of the devastation wrought by Hurricane Harvey, STU Campus Ministry is joining the Archdiocese of Miami in the relief efforts taking place this week in all 109 parishes and missions of the Archdiocese of Miami.
According with the Archdiocese of Miami Media Alert, “this emergency collection will be used to support the humanitarian and recovery efforts and to provide pastoral and rebuilding support.” Officials say about 30,000 people may be forced to seek shelter, while forecasters warn of more rain in the coming days. The full extent of damages and destruction has yet to be determined by the authorities.

Please note that no donations of food, water, or other supplies will be accepted. Donated monies enable local church relief agencies to purchase in bulk the items that are most needed, (water, food, building supplies, tents, tarps, beds, etc.) and truck them quickly to affected areas.
You can also make a check payable to St. Thomas University with memo: Hurricane Harvey Relief and deposit it at the business office in Dooner Hall 102.
This will be our first University response. We will continue responding and serving according to the upcoming needs.
