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.

A Q&A with The CARE Project, Inc. Founder, Carrie Madrid
What’s your story Carrie?
In 2012, I was a single mother of 2 teenage girls and 1 son in the USAF stationed in Korea. I was the booster president for the JW North HS girls basketball program and was wondering what the next phase of my life would be after my youngest graduated high school in 2017. I knew there had to be a greater purpose for my life other than being a mother and booster at the high school. The answer came one morning as I rolled over in bed and found two lumps in my left breast…
