Bash & Co. Sotheby’s International Realty: Home is where charity begins, especially during the holidays

In this week’s column, we wanted to shine a light on some KC programs that provide support to those who need it during the holidays.

The definition of the proverb “charity begins at home” is self-explanatory. In a nutshell, it means that our first responsibility should be focused on the needs of our own family and friends. The holidays are a time when family and friends are always top of mind and at Bash & Co. Sotheby’s International Realty, we consider this city our home and its citizens our family. The holidays bring comfort, joy and peace to many, but they can also bring stress, anxiety and shame to those who may need assistance. In this week’s column, we wanted to shine a light on some KC programs that provide support to those who need it during the holidays.

Catholic Charities
With family support centers across the metro, Catholic Charities helps all types of families no matter the need. In addition to providing food, seasonal clothing, shelter and services year-round, Catholic Charities has special programs in place to help those who need it most around during the holidays. Christmas Shining Star is their annual campaign that provides gifts for hundreds of families that may not have the means to provide them. You can help by adopting a family and purchasing gifts from their wish list, buying a frequently requested gift from retailers and shipping it to them directly or donating via their website. No matter what way you chose to help, you can rest assured you will brighten the holidays for many. Visit https://catholiccharitiesks.org/ or https://catholiccharities-kcsj.org/ for more information!
