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 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.

Carasmark is an incredible non profit. This organization was developed when Nathan and Shannon lost their daughter Avelin from stillbirth. In her memory, this non profit was developed so she would live on. This couple has reached hundreds and possibly thousands over the years in the most practical ways. By donating meals to those who live in poverty monthly. To purchasing backpacks for children who are in inner city. They fill them with school supplies so they can start their year off right. This organization is a shining light a world that needs to know people care and love them.

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.

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase their visibility and funding in order to help them to expand their excellent services.

Carasmark was quick to respond to a personal tragedy experienced by someone I knew, while the representative from the organization was sensitive to the needs of the grieving mother.

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

...helping in the situation mentioned above, and also in connecting Carasmark's backpack program to a school in the Bronx that needed more supplies for their kids.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

...get them more money.
