Location: 4747 Willow Rd Ste P 301 Pleasanton CA 94588 USA

Mission: Shaklee Cares was founded after the devastation of Hurricane Andrew to address the needs of families and communities struggling to recover from a natural disaster or emergency. Recommendations for distributing funds and Disaster Recovery Products Packages are made by those individuals in the areas directly impacted. First consideration is given to individuals and grassroots organizations doing the most goods for the most people. Priority in funding is given to members of the Shaklee Family, including Shaklee Independent Distributors and employees of Shaklee Corporation, who have suffered major losses. Shaklee Cares partners with other nonprofits such as Habitat For Humanity, Red Cross, Salvation Army, and others for work in disaster areas.
Programs: Shaklee Cares helps both in the immediate and the long-term recovery efforts following disasters. Funds are available for individuals in need and for community projects that will benefit many in the future. Recommendations for individuals who need assistance and proposals for funding of community projects come from Shaklee Independent Distributors who live in or near the communities impacted.

Examples of major programs initiated by Shaklee Cares fundings include:

1) Rebuilding homes for disaster victims of tornadoes in Oklahoma and hurricanes in Florida. 2) Rebuilding schools in Tarboro, North Carolina. 3) Replacing home appliances and cookware for victims of fires in Los Alamos, New Mexico. 4) Purchasing generators for communities hit by ice storms in Maine. 5) Replacing neonatal equipment for hospitals following earthquakes in Southern California. 6) Rebuilding the athletic facility and replacing equipment for the school in Valmeyer, Illinois. The entire town was flooded and had to be moved to higher ground. An annual fundraiser for Shaklee Cares takes place at Shaklee Corporation International Leadership Convention. Various other fundraising activities are spearheaded by Shaklee Independent Business Leaders throughout the country.
