Our Story

Care to Learn was founded to help students succeed. It was created to help the child who desperately needed a pair of new shoes and the child who didn't have enough food to make it through the weekend. By meeting the needs of students in the areas of health, hunger, and hygiene, we can bring hope and help to students who desperately need it.
