Chapter Information

Care to Learn - Fordland was established in 2012 as the 10th Care to Learn Chapter. It currently serves students in partnership with the Fordland R-III School District.

In addition to filling health, hunger, and hygiene needs, the Care to Learn - Fordland Chapter has a special Care to Learn locker available at school for students to get grab-and-go items when in need. They are very thankful to be able to support so many students by partnering with several generous organizations in the community.

This year, the Chapter is hosting Donkey Basketball to raise money for student needs. They also host a Community Care Day to raise money and awareness for their Chapter.
