The CARE Project: Community Connectors

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Low Entropy Foundation

The CARE Project: Looking for Community Connectors!

(Remote Position)

What is The C.A.R.E. Project?

C.A.R.E. stands for Compassion, Acceptance, Respect, and Empathy.

The C.A.R.E. Project is a family-centric program that goes beyond addressing the rampant needs of food insecurity in our community. At Low Entropy, we recognize that putting food on the table for families in need is just grazing the surface. Our goal is to come alongside the families in our community to build meaningful, compassionate connections to facilitate real, sustainable solutions to food insecurity.

The C.A.R.E Project is run by a passionate team of volunteers. Whether it’s food sorting, delivering food hampers, calling in for a weekly check-in with families, or coordinating our team’s efforts, C.A.R.E. volunteers make a real tangible impact in our community.

Our next C.A.R.E Project will be running this summer: July 4th - Aug 21st
