Distribution is over and we survived. It was so wonderful seeing the smiles that we put on people's faces when they received their gifts. It is a true honor to be able to provide gifts for 596 children. That is amazing. A big thank you to the staff, volunteers and donors who helped make the Giving Tree possible.
We want to thank everyone who came to the Jingle Bell Ball and supported CAReS and the Giving Tree. This event is always essential in assisting us with things we need. The generosity of the community is very much appreciated.
Here is a picture of some of the staff and volunteers who make the day to day things happen at CAReS.
It's not too late to pick a child from the Giving Tree to help give them a good Christmas. Please visit the Ashland Town Center mall or Chick-fil-A to get a name. Can't buy for one child but want to help? You can donate a toy or article of clothing or send a donation to the Needy Families Fund. Any and all contributions will be greatly appreciated.
Please help us in our efforts to provide Christmas for needy families this year! Donations to the Needy Families Fund can be delivered to the CAReS office in The Neighborhood at 2616 Carter Ave., mailed to CAReS at P.O. Box 1503 or made electronically at boydcountycares.org. All donations are tax deductible. Checks should be made out to Needy Families Fund.
We love our volunteers here at CAReS and would like to add to our volunteer team! We are looking for individuals who would like to give a few hours a week to serve those in need in the Boyd Co. area. Responsibilities include, answering the telephone, filing, signing in clients, assisting Case Managers and most importantly, being patient and understanding with those we serve.
With the Christmas season upon us we are in need of volunteers to work with us on our Giving Tree program. Volunteers will be needed to work the tables at the mall, sort and package gifts and a variety of other duties.
Anyone interested please come by our office Monday through Friday, 10am-3:30pm to complete a volunteer application. We are located in The Neighborhood, 2516 Carter Avenue, Ashland.
