Care to Learn - Fair Grove was established in 2016 as the 31st Care to Learn Chapter. It currently serves students in partnership with the Fair Grove R-X School District.
In addition to filling health, hunger, and hygiene needs, the Care to Learn - Fair Grove Chapter is thankful to be able to support so many students because of the generosity that exists in the Fair Grove community.

Chris is one of the Chapter Liaisons for the Care to Learn - Fair Grove Chapter. He also serves as the Executive Director of Teaching and Learning Fair Grove R-X School District. Prior to this, he served as the Fair Grove High School Principal.
As a Liaison for the Fair Grove Chapter, Aaron works within the Fair Grove R-X School District to ensure student’s basic needs are being met and to raise funds to ensure Care to Learn – Fair Grove continues its mission.
Fair Grove recently filled a need for a high schooler who was enrolled in a program at OTC. A student needed scrubs for class, but didn’t have the funds to purchase them. Care to Learn - Fair Grove was able to fund this need and help this student work on pursuing excellence in education.
