Carasmark has served the Public School 85 school community for the past three years. Their donation of backpacks and school supplies has helped hundreds of ineer city school children start school right with their gift of school supplies and their motivation and inspiration. Together we can help our children succeed.

Carasmark was founded by an amazing couple who experienced deep grief after the loss of their child. They have dedicated their lives to giving back to others who are also experiencing hard times. Their integrity is unquestionable. Their commitment to excellence is sure.

being a part of their fund-raisers. I saw the excitement on the founders' faces as they passionately expressed their visions to give back to their community and help those in need in practical ways.

My wife and I have tried to take an active role in Carasmark since its founding. It is a solid grass roots organization filled with good people doing their best to help to alleviate the suffering mourning mothers and fathers, as well as always keeping a hand open to people in need in the community.

Your time and your money is always well spent with Carasmark

I've had the pleasure of volunteering with this organization for almost 4 years now, and I have seen and heard many great reports from the people that have been impacted by the Carasmark projects. I wanted to be a part of something that meets the practical needs of people in my own area, and Carasmark is exactly what I was looking for!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've been inspired by the hard-work and selflessness of the founders, who have given so much of themselves--their own time, resources, energy, even sleep--with really no expectations for a return except the joy that comes when you know you've changed someones life for the better.

There isn't anything I would currently change about this organization--I'm excited to give more of my own time, and to see what will come out of Carasmark this year!

Carasmark is a wonderful non-profit organization that Shannon and Nathan founded with such vision and purpose. The idea that anyone can help a child or family whose basic needs aren't being met is amazing. This fairly new nonprofit organization is off too a great start with a variety of fundraising events with the goal of helping others is simply admirable. I am proud to be a part of Carasmark and look forward to the results of fundraising and sponsors helping more families/children on a daily basis!

Carasmark volunteers and staff have demonstrated compassion, perseverance, focus and thoughtfulness in planning and completing projects to serve at risk families and their children. They consistently provide needed goods and services in ways that encourage and strengthen families in their efforts to feed and educate their children. Their compassion projects are heartfelt.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing well provisioned backpacks loaded with thoughtfully selected supplies distributed to families in need, seeing generously portioned and expertly prepared meals delivered to families with food security issues, and knowing the support and care expressed to families when their children have died.

I have observed Shannon and Nathan's love for disadvantaged families and children and their willingness to sacrifice their time and energy to help. They are honest, compassionate and persevering in finding ways to touch lives. Weather it is cooking meals for a dozen families, delivering backpacks full of school supplies, or donating money for the funeral of a stillborn child, Shannon, Nathan and their volunteers do very practical things in a way that expresses real love and compassion.

The Great!

Have someone involved focus on recruiting more volunteers.

I have seen some of the work that Carasmark has done in the city of Wilmington, DE. I am part of an organization that works closely with Carasmark, and have seen how valuable their contributions have been.
Hundreds of children in an elementary school where most of the student are well below
the poverty line were able to receive new backpacks stocked with school essentials that are unaffordable to many of the families.
A young mom who's baby died suddenly was provided with food for friends and family attending the funeral, an expense they were unable to meet with out help.
Many families that I know, or have some connection with have received generous, home cooked, healthy meals on a monthly basis. This effort helps relieve financial pressures, as well as meeting emotional needs for feeling cared for.
Carasmark has done many other projects as well. These are the ones that I have seen personally, and have witnesses the value they have, and the positive impact on the children and families.

The Great!

Possibly in time expand to include some kind of training in the area of healthy food selection and preparation.

I work for a partnering organization of Carasmark in Wilmington, DE and in this past year I have been able to deliver over 50 meals provided by Carasmark to needy families who are so appreciative. During this year Carasmark also gladly stepped in to provide practical support and care for a woman who lost her very young daughter.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing families greatly blessed in their normal lives and in times of great sorrow.

Increase the base of supporters so that more children and families could benefit from this organization.
