Based in Riverside, CA., The CARE Project, Inc. (TCP) recently joined our Partner Agency Program. This volunteer-led organization founded by breast cancer survivor, Carrie Madrid, dedicates their work to emotionally and financially supporting breast cancer patients and those recovering from breast cancer treatment.
Through this partnership, TCP no longer has to use their funds to purchase gift cards for their terminally ill patients but can shop at the food bank for essential items that their recipients need, including fruits, vegetables, grains, and meats.
Gracious donors allow FARSB to keep our warehouse flowing with healthy, nutritious items needed to sustain a well-balanced diet that recipients of TCP can benefit from.
“We never want our clients to feel like they are lining up to receive a handout. We deliver groceries as a friend would to someone who is sick,” said Madrid.
“You all make it easier for us,” she added.
We are proud to call TCP a partner of ours. Support of the food bank ensures that FARSB can continue to help The CARE Project, Inc. and many other organizations in our community doing phenomenal work for those in need.
