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!

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!

Carasmark is a fantastic nonprofit committed to helping families and children in need. There are many different ways you can help out. I especially enjoy working with the backpack program, which provides backpacks full of school supplies to children in need. This is a great nonprofit to get involved in, and the board is full of truly passionate people who are committed to their mission of inspiring hope to families in need.

I am so proud to not only know this non profit but to know its founder in a personal way. I have literally seen Shannon go through such a tragedy of loosing her baby girl and turning it into a way to help others. Her actions clearly line up with all she wants to do for others. She is not a founder that sits behind a computer all day and doesnt get out with others. She is the total opposite. She does it all and is involved with every part of this orginazation. Her ability to reach others with what she does allows Carasmark not only to continue to be an orginization worth investing in but as well as one to be spoken about among others. Her fundraisers are well thought out and has allowed the orginization to be where it is today along with investors who believe in Shannon and the purpose of Carasmark. If I could some Shannon up in one word it would be Genuine. That is her non profit as well. Carasmark is an orginization that is full of genuine people with hearts ready to help for none other than the reason being the need is overwhelming and there is a void of places families can truly trust and get the help needed. I do believe that Carasmark will be around for some time and will continue to be a great help to all who are in need.

I learned about Carasmark a few months ago from President Shannon Lynch and was in awe of how selfless the organization as a whole is. The fact that the founders of Carasmark were able to take such a traumatic experience and use it as motivation to help others struggling is both amazing and inspiring. I've volunteered my services for an upcoming Carasmark event and am excited to see the organization at work.

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.
