St. Johns CARES, Inc. (formerly JCP CARES) is a nonprofit organization committed to helping local charities in St. Johns County. We provide assistance to local charities and those in need through donations and time. We divide our charity efforts into four different categories; Animals & Environment, Senior & Medical, Children, and Homeless & Abused. We focus on these categories throughout the year.
Helping Hands of Nocatee has joined St. Johns CARES as St. Johns CARES Kids to work alongside one another supporting the charities in St. Johns County with more family and kid friendly activities.
News for April: Guana-Tolomato-Matanzas family seining and clean up for Earth Day Cleanup on 4/22. Read about the event and use our SignupGenius page to reserve your slot. Ongoing through April: Chip in for Kids and Suitcases for Seniors. St. Johns CARES Kids is taking signups for Meal Preparation at St. Francis House and for SJCKids Farmer's Market.

Thank YOU for your support of Halo Keepers! Our March yarn drive yielded 218 skeins of yarn that they will crochet for children suffering from cancer into soft wigs made into their favorite character or princess. We also received cash donations through their GoFundMe site. More donations of money, yarn, or participants to crochet the wigs are always welcome. Contact Halo Keepers for the list of special soft yarns suitable for children being treated for cancer.
