Volunteers Help Carry Out the Mission of Catholic Charities

Each month, nearly  carry out the mission of Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas.

Our volunteers generously give both their time and talent in a variety of ways—from hosting food drives to sorting donations at TurnStyles to helping with English language classes or providing companionship and support as a Friendly Visitor or Catholic Community Hospice volunteer.

Last year, our volunteers logged 216,246 hours resulting in over $4.7 million saved in staffing costs while helping those in our community! On November 30, the Catholic Charities Volunteer team hosted a Volunteer Appreciation Mass at Queen of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church, celebrated by Fr. Bill Bruning. The congregation enjoyed the musical talents of the Bishop Miege Concert Chorale Select Ensemble. Following Mass, the volunteers were treated to a wine and cheese reception.

“We are so grateful for all of our volunteers,” said Michelle Carlstedt, Director of Volunteers. “This year’s Volunteer Appreciation Mass was a wonderful celebration of the work being done by our volunteers to put love into action at Catholic Charities.”
