What Does
Donating Mean?

Donating to HCAR Cares helps us continue to provide funding to organizations and groups who address food, shelter, health, safety, and cultural needs, among others. It also supports our community service projects, such as the annual Thanksgiving Basket Drive, Project Linus support, Back to School Supply Drive, and more!

Success Stories

My organization has been the recipient of HCAR’s support since 2014. They have been the largest supporter of our Thanksgiving basket program, donating 1,316 Thanksgiving baskets over the past 7 years. Each year, the number of donations increase, which is a true testament to the hard work and dedication of their amazing team of men and women. Their continued support of our holiday program, as well as their support of other local charities is a testimony to their commitment of our community’s wellbeing. I truly value our partnership.
