– Winston Churchill
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 are always on the road recovering 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 expanded mission is to not only fight hunger in our community, but also the plight of poverty that ravages many in our country. A large sector of the people we serve have full time employment but do not earn enough to take care fo 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.
Be on the look out for some special canned goods we have going out into the community with a We Care logo!! We Care received a shipment of 44,000 cans of mixed vegetables, baked beans, and green peas that will help our neighbors in need maintain shelf stable items when times get tough. We were very lucky to have the help of Manatee Plumbing and Advanced Home Repair to unload our shipment of cans. A very big thank you to all the guys that came out to help us, they are all truly hunger warriors!
