Thanks to the support of local parishes and businesses, Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas is able to spread a little Christmas cheer to individuals who are actively participating in long-term programming. Clients enrolled in our Pregnancy Maintenance Initiative (PMI), Adoption, Workforce, Financial Education and long-term case management programs based out of our Wyandotte County office were eligible to receive Walmart gift cards.
“We are proud to provide a source of joy for those in need during the holiday season and are thankful to our partners, whose generosity allowed us to provide this gift to 579 clients,” said Camille Pickhinke, Director of Community Engagement.
