Send a Meal

With traditional safety nets like schools, daycare and senior centers closed, many in our communities will not be able to provide for their families and children will go hungry. Thanks to your support, CARE and our partner organizations are delivering thousands of meals to the nation’s most vulnerable communities.

Deliver Critical Supplies

The CARE Package Relief program provides work and income to individuals delivering critical goods and services to vulnerable and quarantined community members. In partnership with local food banks and other service organizations, CARE provides aid where it’s needed most while at the same time creating paying jobs for workers impacted by the crisis.

Help a Global Community

The COVID-19 pandemic is stretching the limits of even the best prepared countries. Yet the world has barely begun to come to grips with how the outbreak threatens the world’s poorest communities. Send help to places in the greatest need.

Out Of War, Came Hope

75 Years of CARE

In the shadow of WWII a small group of Americans came together to help millions of Europeans with the simple, but powerful plan: the CARE Package®. This innovative idea sparked an American movement that would deliver more than 100 million CARE Packages containing food and medicine to war survivors and families around the world, along with the tools and supplies needed to rebuild their lives.
