To the editor:

As the Director of Communication and Development at Catholic Charities of Southwest Kansas, I am reaching out to you to share some exciting news. Giving Tuesday is just around the corner, and I invite you to “Invest in the Power of Compassion” on November 28th.

At Catholic Charities, our unwavering commitment to honoring human potential through service, advocacy, and invitation in the spirit of the Gospel drives everything we do. We strive to ensure that every person experiences hope and fulfillment. This GIVING TUESDAY, we invite you to join us in investing in the power of compassion and help us fulfill this mission.

When you choose to invest with Catholic Charities, you are choosing to honor human potential. Your donation will support our various programs and services, directly impacting the lives of individuals and families we serve. Here are just a few examples of how your support can make a difference:

• Pregnancy support and infant adoption: We provide unwavering support to expecting mothers and facilitate open infant adoptions, connecting loving families with infants in need of a safe and nurturing home.

• Behavioral health services: Our compassionate team of professionals offers accessible behavioral health services, providing counseling and support to help individuals navigate life’s challenges, heal from trauma, and build a brighter future.

• Housing and economic assistance: We believe that everyone deserves a safe and stable place to call home. Your contribution will provide affordable housing options and economic assistance to those facing housing instability and financial hardship.

• Refugee resettlement and legal immigration services: We welcome and support individuals seeking refuge, offering them necessary legal and social assistance to rebuild their lives in our communities.

• Disaster relief: When disaster strikes, we provide immediate and long-term assistance, delivering emergency shelter, food, clothing, and other essential supplies to those affected.

 Your generosity can transform lives and help create a more compassionate and resilient community, where everyone has access to the support they need to thrive. Together, let’s demonstrate the tangible impact of Compassion In Action this Giving Tuesday.

Please mark your calendar for November 28th and consider making a donation to Catholic Charities of Southwest Kansas. By investing in compassion, you will help us carry forward our mission and continue to build a community where everyone, irrespective of their circumstances, experiences the power of compassion.
