Thank You for Helping Those Impacted
by the Oso Mudslide
Thank you to everyone who has donated so far to relief
efforts on behalf of those impacted by the Oso Mudslide. Please
know that we have raised over $249,000 and it continues to grow thanks to your
generosity! All donations for Oso Mudslide relief are being forwarded to Rev.
Timothy J. Sauer, Pastor at St. John Vianney Church (Darrington) and Immaculate
Conception Church (Arlington). These parishes are reaching out to and assisting
people in the Oso community in a variety of ways, including helping to defray funeral and burial costs for loved ones.
parishes have opened their facilities to be used by Mental Health Counselors.
In addition, Fr. Sauer has also responded to a request by the Snohomish County
Human Services Department to place community ‘navigators’ at the parishes.
These are representatives from various community-based agencies who will be
able to assist those impacted to receive the services they need.
CCS is still accepting donations.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families, individuals
and communities impacted by the Oso Mudslide disaster in Snohomish County.
The mudslide was recently declared a federal disaster.
This declaration provides funding to support federal, state and regional
emergency first responders in continued search and rescue/recovery efforts in
the area. This phase of search and recovery allows hope and support for the
families and communities affected. As the first responders are still in the initial stage of
the disaster, it is currently being determined what support will be provided by
FEMA and other state and federal emergency resources.
