The Mission of The Caring Place is to provide for the basic human needs of all people in our community in a welcoming, respectful and caring way.
Reminiscing about The Caring Place summer in exactly 1000 words...
What is “Shopping for Good?” This is the act of shopping in support of a cause. In our case, when you shop in these ways, you are supporting The Caring Place mission to provide for the basic human needs of all people in our community in a welcoming, respectful and caring way. Revenue generated from these various forms of shopping help The Caring Place support its neighbors in need with food, rent, utilities and other critical bills. When our neighbors are in crisis, The Caring Place is a lifeline.
One unclear aspect of this mission-based culture implementation was, how would it hold up during a pandemic? That’s not something you normally plan, and we didn’t plan for that. So, how do we live out this Mission during a pandemic?
