(Overland Park, KS) – Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas (CCNEK) is living up to its mission of putting love into action by continuing to welcoming the stranger. This year, the agency is on pace to feed over 200,000 people, assist over 3,000 people in finding or sustaining permanent housing and keeping the utilities on for over 5,000 people.

Recently, CCNEK received a generous donation from executive producer and entrepreneur Rebecca Wang. She has given a sizeable collection of brand new, high-quality clothing, which CCNEK can use in their efforts to stabilize and strengthen the lives of many suffering from economic barriers. CCNEK is delighted to work with Wang, who has demonstrated a strong commitment to helping those in need through a wide variety of charities and endeavors.

Said Rebecca Wang of the work CCNEK has done so far: “I am immensely proud to contribute to such an openminded, compassionate organization as Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas. I feel that I share in their values of community service, education, and protecting those in need.”

“We are humbled by the generous contribution received from Rebecca Wang,” said Ken Williams, CEO, Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas. Rebecca Wang’s donation, he added, will augment the agency’s ability to resettle refugees and provide them with housing, basic necessities, education, and training which are all vital in supporting refugees on their pathway to self-sufficiency.
