Assistance is sought for flooding victims

Catholic Charities is making an appeal for monetary donations to help families in the Tioga County area who were affected by flooding in late June.

According to Kathy Dubel, justice-and-peace coordinator for Catholic Charities of the Southern Tier, residents need assistance because of damage to their homes. For instance, many cannot do their laundry because their machines were destroyed. In addition, she noted, some workers were not able to get to their jobs during the evacuation period and lost that income.

Donations may be sent to: Catholic Charities, 215 E. Church St., Elmira, NY 14901. Indicate “Tioga Flood Relief” on your envelope.
