WHAT WE DO
Why Not Care, INC is a 501c3 non-profit organization geared towards providing beneficial resources for the homeless, the disenfranchised, everyday people, or businesses and community organizations that are in need of supplemental assistance. From the distribution of Care Packs filled with everyday essentials for homeless and unfortunate individuals, to providing creative and educational services for our partnering organizations - Why Not Care is essentially a dedicated network of people who are able and willing to offer their resources and services to help others who are in need.
WHY NOT CARE
WHY NOT CARE has been working closely with local churches, community organizations, city agencies and families to give as much caring to Puerto Rico as we can. We have been involved in numerous initiatives with the goal of raising donations for hygiene products, food, book bags, toys, money and awareness all geared towards helping the people of Puerto Rico on and off the island. Our goal is to continue the effort and lend support with helping to inspire and educate the people of Puerto Rico with long term empowerment.
