Welcome to We Care
Founded in 2004, We Care is an unfunded 501(c)(3) whose mission is to support our neighbors in need in every way we can. Since it’s inception, We Care has been on the front lines of hunger relief. Our trucks go out three days a week to recover food from grocery stores throughout the area, but our work doesn’t stop there. We realize that household items can sometimes double a family’s grocery bill, so we are constantly collecting laundry detergents, cleaning supplies, and hygiene products to redistribute to the community.
Our new mission is to not only fight hunger in our community, but also the plight of poverty that ravages many in Citrus County. A large sector of the people we serve have full time employment but do not earn enough to take care of their family’s basic needs and we are working to fill those gaps. We are sitting down with our clients to find out what they need and to further understand the struggles they are facing. They guide us in the direction we should be going to help them in whatever ways they need.
The future of We Care is bright! We are working on new programs and initiatives to better serve our neighbors in need.
