OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City (CCAOKC) has officially kicked off its Annual Appeal.
Last year, Catholic Charities raised more than $2.7 million during the Annual Appeal. This year, the goal is to raise $2.8 million; every dollar of which goes to assist members of the Oklahoma City community and stays in the metro.
To accomplish this, the group has chosen the theme: “The rich and the poor have this in common: the Lord is the maker of them all,” Proverbs 22:2.
Members are asking donors to reflect on how they can continue to make an impact on the community through a donation.
“If you look, you can see the scars of homelessness around Oklahoma every day,” said Christi Jeffreys, Director of Annual Giving.
