Mother’s Day Care Package Drive

Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate and honour mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers in our society.

Cause We Care Foundation believes in celebrating the efforts and dedication of all mother’s… especially single mother’s living in poverty trying to raise children with little or no support, resources or financial means. This year marks our 9th Annual Mother’s Day Drive. We raise money to provide much needed toiletry supplies, housekeeping supplies and personal items to single mothers in need in our community. This year, we supplied over 425 care packages to single mother families.

  • 1 shampoo*
  • 1 package dish soap*
