Who We Are

Carolina Cares is a private outreach group that started in 2014 designed as a way to help Raleigh and the surrounding communities within and around Wake County North Carolina.


Carolina Cares is managed by a small group of volunteers and a large community of people who want to help their neighbors. Carolina Cares is 100% volunteer operated. We rely 100% on donations of food and clothing to stock our food pantry and clothes closet.

What We Do

Carolina Cares is an outreach program and part of the not-for-profit organization Bridge the Gap Mission, that works on providing and connecting the people of The Triangle with resources such as food, clothing, and information for additional services.

Carolina Cares receives no funding or financial donations therefore we do 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.
