To help earthquake victims in Italy

People who want to help relief funds aiding the Abruzzo Region of Italy struck by a deadly earthquake can donate to the American Red Cross’s International Response Fund. The Web site is www.redcross.org. Go to donate now, check the box for International Response Fund and write L’Aquila Earthquake so your donation will be dedicated to those specific relief efforts.
The Italian Red Cross also is accepting donations for its recovery efforts. The Web site is http://www.cri.it/donazioni/. The Web site is entirely in Italian.
Catholic Relief Services also is prepared to take donations at www.crs.org, or call 1-877-HELP-CRS and tell them it’s for the L’Aquila earthquake.
This information was provided by Lieutenant Gov. Michael Fedele, who has family in Italy’s Abruzzo Region.
