LENEXA, Kan. — The Association of Bengalis Kansas City-Sangam's 25th-anniversary celebration in 2020 culminated with a donation this week to Foster Adopt Connect, a nonprofit based in Lenexa that helps families who adopt abused and neglected children.

The Association of Bengalis' 25th anniversary was in 2020.

Last December, more than 50 Bengali families in the Association raised money for the charitable project. Volunteers purchased diapers, baby wipes, sanitizer, shampoo, masks and other items for families helped by Foster Adopt Connect and delivered the items on Tuesday.

Managers at Foster Adopt Connect thanked the Association of Bengalis Kansas City-Sangam, calling the donations thoughtful, and generous.
