Care & Share
To build a better community, one kid at a time.
Care & Share’s goal is to connect Saskatoon’s businesses, schools, and the community to give less fortunate children the same opportunities, education, dignity, hope, and role models, that every child deserves. They strive to provide every child the chance to reach his or her potential in sports, in school, in culture and in recreation
Care & Share now funds programs and makes them available to all community schools in Saskatoon by partnering with various organizations to facilitate programs and services.
Most of all, Care & Share works to put smiles on children’s faces and give them pride in what they do. This confidence and support is what will motivate them to achieve in the future.
