Want to Help?

Due to thrift store closures at The Caring Place, the organization is losing an average of $37,500 per week in revenue. This loss in income is critical to The Caring Place as it would normally cover all of The Caring Place's operating expenses. Dedicated staff are still receiving, packaging and distributing food to hundreds of families multiple times a week during this pandemic.  At this time, we ask you to consider financially supporting The Caring Place. The Caring Place can purchase food in bulk at a reduced rate from the Central Texas Food Bank. You can donate at www.caringplacetx.org/donate.  You may also send checks to P.O. Box 1215, Georgetown, Texas, 78627.

The Caring Place requests that the community follow it on Facebook @thecaringplace for the latest information or activity changes at the organization.  You can also sign up for the organization’s electronic newsletter at www.caringplacetx.org/newsletter

ABOUT THE CARING PLACE

Since 1985, The Caring Place has provided for the basic human needs of all people in our community in a welcoming, respectful and caring way.  Through two thrift stores, The Shops at The Caring Place and Second Helping, both in Georgetown, the organization is able to pay all operating expenses to serve a growing community.  All monetary and food donations directly benefit neighbors needing assistance with food, utility, rent, transportation or medical assistance. The Caring Place is a community-based and community-supported organization.  For more information on The Caring Place, visit www.caringplacetx.org.
