Reviews for Carasmark
I am an educator in a Title 1 school who was fortunate enough to be affected by Carasmark. We were able to provide 50 school bags to our neediest students filled with school supplies. This allowed our students to start school feeling confident, prepared, and optimistic about the year to come. We are so thankful and fortunate to have been a recipient of this wonderful organization!
I first heard about Carasmark during the summer of 2013, and I was excited to volunteer for such a terrific cause! Shannon and her team give so much to the community…I am particularly impressed with the aid they give to inner city kids and schools. Way to go!! Keep up the great work!
I have never seen a charitable organization directly impact our local community as much as Carasmark has. Shannon - the director of Carasmark - is a force like no other. I admire her dedication to ensure that the memory of her daughter is honored by helping local children. Her backpack program is wonderful!
Carasmark is an amazing organization created by amazing people. The work behind Carasmark is crucial and important to changing the lives of children and families in need. Carasmark is an organization centered around compassion, authenticity, and love. I fully support the message this beautiful organization stands for and its' goal to change lives one at a time.
I have been a volunteer/donor with Carasmark for a few years and I love that Carasmark is passionate and practical. It is making a difference locally, close to home with hot meals or backpacks stocked with school supplies. This type of service is essential in meeting the immediate needs of the community in a very real way. I am happy to support Carasmark and enjoy volunteering to help them make a difference.
Carasmark is a humble organization with a lofty quest. I proudly and happily support carasmark and its attention to education and families. It is an organized and well-run group that provides varied and fun opportunities for its donors to show their support throughout the year, both through volunteering and monetary donations. Cannot think of a more worthy organization in which to invest!
I have volunteered several times for Carasmark and every time am excited by the good work that I see it doing in the daily lives of children and parents. In particular, I have most often assisted with the backpack program which provides kids with the necessary supplies for school that they would be unable to have otherwise. I love this program because it not only provides for these kids in school, but helps the parents to know that their children will be prepared for the school year even when they are unable to provide that for them. I think Carasmark does a great job of quantifiably helping the lives of children, and I look forward to continuing to help the great work it will continue to do in the future.
Carasmark is an incredible nonprofit that has helped thousands of kids over the years receive backpacks and school supplies. Carasmark was founded by people that want to make a difference in peoples lives. Whether it be through backpacks or countless meals made for people in need this non-profit serves its community tirelessly. I have seen the impact first hand.
I have been a donor/volunteer for several Carasmark events over the last few years and I cannot think of a more worthy cause. Education has been in the spotlight for more than a decade as both students and teachers are constantly being asked to do more with less. Carasmark helps provide resources where they are needed most across two states. Even the basics are lacking in many areas and Carasmark helps fill a critical void and put children on the path to success.
I am a Family Crisis Therapist in New Castle, DE. I work at Eisenberg Elementary School where 90% of our population lives at or below poverty. We have been so fortunate to have a great working relationship with Carasmark. Each year they donate 100 backpacks to our school. Not just a backpack, but school supplies to go with them! Every student registered as homeless receives a backpack, as well as any other student that arrives either without one, with a broken one or requesting one. If I could describe the looks on the parents face when they realize that is one less thing they need to worry about, it would be a powerful description of relief and happiness. The kids are able to choose which one they want, making them feel like they have picked out their own backpack as well.
I'm not too sure what I would do without the generous donations and work that Carasmark does. It is an amazing non-profit organization that deserves the highest recognition!
