It’s the season of caring and sharing at Catholic Charities!
Here is a list of this year’s Christmas activities to stabilize and strengthen families in the Diocese of Wichita:
(Wichita, KS – November 19, 2012)
Adopt a Shelter Family - This Christmas, help ensure the families we serve experience a successful transition out of shelter. Our families need basic household items as they exit the shelter and seek to begin a new life. Items such as pots and pans, cookware, utensils, clothes hampers, laundry baskets, new towel sets and new sheet sets are just some of the crucial items needed.

#GivingTuesday – Catholic Charities has joined #GivingTuesday, a national effort using the power of social media to transform how people think about the giving season. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving holiday, #GivingTuesday will be Nov. 27. While Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become synonymous with shopping, the goal is to make #GivingTuesday synonymous with giving back, and to kick off the season of caring and sharing. To join Catholic Charities’ #GivingTuesday initiative, visit http://givingtuesday.org/partner-detail/catholic-charities-inc-wichita-kansas/.
Stuff the Bus – The Stuff the Bus bus will travel throughout Wichita from Nov. 28 to Dec. 1. Stuff the Bus benefits Harbor House at Catholic Charities and Wichita YWCA. Businesses and organizations that wish to participate may donate new toys, non-perishable food, personal hygiene products and other household goods. Listen to B98-FM or go to http://catholicdioceseofwichita.org/events-cc-home/stuff-the-bus for a list of stops.
