THANK YOU FOR MAKING THE 35TH ANNUAL GOLF CLASSIC SUCH A SUCCESS!

We’re thrilled to announce that the Ben & Betty Zarda Family 35th Annual Golf Classic raised $140,000 this year! Since 1981, the Zarda Family has been inspiring golfers and non-golfers alike to come together in raising thousands of dollars for those in need in our community. Through the support of our dedicated event founders, committee members, volunteers and participants Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas’ Golf Classic has been making a difference in our community for 35 years!


FUND-A-NEED: REFRIGERATED TRUCK

infographic-fund-a-need-farm-to-table-500pxThe 2016 FUND-A-NEED supports purchasing a REFRIGERATED TRUCK for transporting fresh produce and dairy products.

The New Roots for Refugees program helps refugees start their own small farming business growing and selling fruits and vegetables. This produce not only feeds their families, but is also sold at local Farmers’ Markets.

The program has the opportunity to expand to local retail outlets resulting in greater self-suciency for the farmers and their families by doubling the program’s revenue! However, properly transporting the product according to safety guidelines stands in the way of seizing this dream.

When not utliized by the New Roots for Refugees program, this refrigerated vehicle will be used to support the Food Rescue initiative, enabling Catholic Charities to provide fresh produce and dairy to our nine food pantries and the people we serve.
