Who We Are & What We Do

Carolina Cares started in 2014 as a private outreach group as a way to help people in need in Raleigh and the surrounding communities within The Triangle. In 2021 we've begun the journey to become a registered 501(c)3.

Carolina Cares provides and connects people with resources such as food, clothing, and information for additional services. The organization is managed by a small group of volunteers and aided by a large community of people who want to help their neighbors.

Over 300 households per month receive assistance from Carolina Cares to battle food insecurity. In 2020 Carolina Cares helped with Christmas gifts for 400 children.

Carolina Cares is 100% volunteer operated, relies 100% on donations, and is not funded by any other institutions.  

Carolina Cares does not distribute money for any reason.  We are not able to assist with rent, shelter, utility payments, medical issues, childcare, transportation, medications, or hotel rooms.
