My family has had a great experience with Carasmark over the years. We've participated in fundraisers to raise money for their backpack project and food drives to supply kids in need with food. We highly recommend Carasmark and the work they do!

Carasmark is such a great charity, they give back on a number of fronts: backpacks with school supplies, healthy meals for those who can't afford them and support for those going through the hardest of times. It's a privilege to support them.

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 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 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.

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.
