The following list of needs is what Carolina Cares NC needs right now to help us achieve our goal of ensuring everyone in Wake County has access to emergency food when they need it.
Carolina Cares is currently a community outreach program under Bridge the Gap Mission, but our #1 non-food goal in 2021 is to achieve our own 501(c)(3) status.
Seeking an attorney to partner with our 501(c)(3) (pro-bono)
Seeking a storage facility in Raleigh or West Garner who would like to donate a storage room to Carolina Cares NC
Storage Shelves & Organizers:
Seeking additional shelving and shelf organizers for our food pantry
Farm, Restaurant, Bakery, and Grocery Donor partners:
Seeking ongoing partnerships to ensure food isn't wasted and gets to those in need
Seeking a professional Graphic Designer to help with a few startup graphics including logo and badges
Seeking an experienced grant writer willing to donate their time for grant submissions
Seeking a used and reliable bus that we can turn into a mobile food pantry. With a bus we can take the food to the people that need it the most. Many who are food insecure are also transportation insecure and getting to a food pantry isn't always as easy as it sounds. We are inspired by similar bus programs in major cities and know we can do this here.
