"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink,
I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me,
I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me."
CARE Corps is a benevolence ministry that serves our community with a local North Texas Food Bank pantry and rent/utility assistance.
CARE Corps is a 211 Texas helping agency that glorifies God by loving our neighbors-in-need through food and financial assistance. By showing compassion, we may have a greater opportunity to share hope and faith, and change lives.
We have become an integral part of assisting low-income residents in the Richardson Independent School District area since 1986. Through our affiliation with the North Texas Food Bank, we are able to offer fresh produce, meat and dairy as well as pantry items.
In an average month, CARE Corps distributes 20,000 pounds of food to more than 230 people. That's nearly 11,000 individuals and 1 million pounds of food each year. Also, CARE Corps volunteers meet with clients each week who have unexpected expenses due to job loss, medical complications or family change, and need a little help with rent or high utility bills.
