The Mission of Care to Learn is to provide immediate funding to meet emergent needs in the areas of health, hunger and hygiene so every student can be successful in school.
Enough with the background. Let's get on to the 7 reasons why you should support Care to Learn.
2. Every chapter has a feeding program and most have a weekend backpack program. (Cat not included.)
5. Since its founding in 2008, more than 700,000 impressions have been made through Care to Learn. Every impression represents a kid getting help.
6. General donations go directly to the students. I'd call that a win-win.
7. And lastly, Care to Learn exists so kids can just be kids. They shouldn't have to worry about scary adult things yet.
Tuesday, May 9th is the third annual Give Ozarks Day. Your donation to Care to Learn will make an immediate difference in the lives of area children.
