– 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.
Come see We Care and our newly designed Hunger Warrior Van in in the Crystal River Christmas Parade on December 4, 2021 at 6pm and again in the Inverness Christmas Parade on December 11, 2021 at 12 pm.
