(WTNH)– This month’s Knights of Columbus charity focuses on renewed efforts to help Connecticut residents recover from damages sustained during Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

President, Catholic Charities of Fairfield County, Al Barber, and Vice Pres, Catholic Charities of Fairfield County, Sandi Cole, talked about how the Catholic Charities became involved with Super Storm Sandy relief efforts and relief efforts being provided.

Over the last 95 years, Catholic Charities has grown to be one of the largest private family service agencies in Fairfield County.

It has been their privilege and mission to serve the most vulnerable in our communities through programs which alleviate hunger, support the elderly and those with physical and mental health challenges, provide safe care for children and safe haven for the homeless, and deliver fair and just services to immigrants, all without regard to age, race, religion, or ability to pay.
