• We Care Volunteers is a socially-conscious public charity exempt from Federal income tax under section 501 (c) (3) that helps those who cannot help themselves. • We provide public awareness regarding the importance of eating nutritious meals, and the need for life skill/education for the homeless and working poor of our communities. • Our goal is to feed those who cannot feed themselves, and to educate--through volunteer service, those individuals who lack the life skills needed to make wise food choices and to help provide them with the skills to become better stewards of their health. • We provide a loving example for them to see their community as a caring environment...addressing their needs first through providing a source for regular home cooked meals, and secondly enabling them to learn to take better care of themselves.
Thank you for your interest in We Care Volunteers.
We Care Volunteers provides a home-cooked meal, Monday through Thursday nights to the homeless and working poor of Reno/Sparks community. We serve dinner from 7-8pm
Tuesday-Thursday 335 Record Street off 4th street in the Parking Lot of the Tom Vetica Resource ctr.
Message for Directions--We served outdoors in the SAFEGROUND area, right off the corner of 4th and Record streets. Many of the resources for the homeless and poor are located within walking distance, which means we were able to reach the elderly and disabled living on the 4th street corridor and those traveling by bus. (the bus station is only 1 block away).
We Care Volunteers provides the main dish and at least two other side dishes plus the beverage(s) to serve anywhere from 150-300 meals per night. We encourage church, community and school groups along with the general public to join in to serve, and to provide a side-dish or dessert, etc. to round out the meal-- if they so choose. We Care Volunteers-- are all inclusive-- partnering many of the agencies throughout the greater Washoe County to assist those in need, but we have no ties to any specific church, political, or community organization.
