"St. Johns (County) Community Active Residents Engaged in Service"
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 five different categories; Animals & Environment, Senior & Veterans, Children & Education, Medical and Homeless & Abused. We focus on these categories throughout the year.
Annual Food Drive
Thank you to to all who donated non-perishable food and personal hygiene items that were distributed to Christ's Cupboard, St Francis House, SEA Community, Shepherd's Haven and Pie in the Sky to help those in need. Thank you to all our volunteers who made this Initiative possible.
ANNUAL GIVING TREE INITIATIVE
The Annual Giving Tree Initiative will occur from mid-November to Monday, December 7th. Wish tags and collection boxes/posters will be displayed in 43 host donation collection sites. Our 40 partner non-profit organizations serving the Elderly, Veterans, Homeless, Abused, Children and Animals in St. Johns County have submitted wishes from their clients. The wishes will be displayed on the decorative wish tags at the host donation collection sites.
This year the request for gift cards has increased. The gift cards most requested are $5, $10 and $20 cards from grocery stores, Walmart, Target and gas stations.
Monetary donations are used to help fulfill wishes not covered through the host donation collection sites.
Look for the collection boxes and wishes at Publix grocery stores, libraries and various other businesses and organizations.
