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.
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.
The Caring Place Food Pantry will launch its Hunger Free Holidays Food Drive on October 1; it ends December 31. Unlike previous years, this year, The Caring Place’s Food Drives across the community will only accept monetary donations. The organization is introducing the Little Blue Barrel campaign in order for businesses, churches, neighborhoods and other organizations to collect critical funds for the local Food Pantry.
Through its annual grants process, Georgetown Health Foundation (GHF) awarded $910,000 in grants to 20 organizations serving Georgetown residents. Awards were given based on alignment with GHF’s priorities which are focused on basic needs (food, shelter, housing) and social determinants of health (SDOH).
