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!

I have been a volunteer/donor with Carasmark for a few years and I love that Carasmark is passionate and practical. It is making a difference locally, close to home with hot meals or backpacks stocked with school supplies. This type of service is essential in meeting the immediate needs of the community in a very real way. I am happy to support Carasmark and enjoy volunteering to help them make a difference.

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.

Carasmark is a charity that seeks to encourage families by meeting practical needs. Two of the ongoing efforts that have inspired hope in communities with generally lower SES in the Delaware area are the backpack project and the healthy meals program. These two initiatives extend helpful resources to families in need; these programs also extend an opportunity for ongoing relationship with Carasmark initiatives and programs associated with other affiliated non-profits in the area. Carasmark hosts many events that allow community members to get involved in supporting such wonderful efforts to make a positive differences in others' lives.

I helped Shannon run a walkathon, Carasmark first fundraising event, here in NY. It felt great to get involved and spread the word of this awesome non-profit! From tea parties to backpacks, Carasmark has done a amazing job of giving back to communities and providing a fun way for individuals and businesses to help. As anyone who is close to Shannon and Nathan knows, this organization carries special meaning to them and I am very grateful to be a part of it.

I have seen so many lives touched through Carasmark. Through their Backpack Project they have literally made a practical and lasting impact in the lives of so many students in need. I have personally been part of their Meals Project, where I have delivered meals to families in need. It has been great to be a part of this excellent organization and to help through who are struggling in life.

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!

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.

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.
