Our BRAND NEW and highly anticipated H.U.D.D.L.E. (Helping Us Develop Dedication, Leadership, and Enthusiasm for Community Service) Youth Leadership Program begins this Fall in Easton Area schools. We are very excited to get this program under way, engaging 8th grade students in learning about leadership, community service, being a role model, and the like. The program will consist of roughly six sessions in total, with three in the Fall of 2013 and three in the Spring of 2014. As the program reaches the Spring, students will begin brainstorming and devising a community service project of their own for the Athletes C.A.R.E. team to tackle! Be sure to check in as we provide updates on the program as it gets under way!
On June 9th, 2013, Athletes C.A.R.E. received its first-ever award, being recognized by the City of Easton and Easton Area Neighborhood Center for outstanding service to the Easton Area community following our ‘ALL-OR-NOTHING’ Campaign hosted by WeDidIt. The campaign raised over $6k, all of which was donated to the Roof Over Shelter in downtown Easton to support those in need. A big ‘Thank You!’ goes to all those involved in the fundraiser, helping raise an incredible amount of money for an incredible cause! Additionally, we’d like to thank the Easton Community as we are honored to have received such an award and we look forward to continued service to the Easton-area.
We finally had the opportunity to visit the Roof Over for Women and Children Shelter in Easton, PA to deliver our $6,081 donation, raised with the help of so many during our 60-day All-Or-Nothing Campaign earlier this Spring. The donation will go directly to the shelter to help purchase beds, blankets, mattresses, pillows, and the like. We could not be more thankful for the love and support we received during the campaign. With your support, we were able to make a great difference in the lives of those in need. We look forward to continuing a relationship with the Roof Over Shelter for years to come!
On Sunday, April 21st, Athletes C.A.R.E. hosted its first-ever Kicking4Hunger Soccer Clinic in which children were asked to bring canned food items as their fee to participate in the clinic. These items were then donated to the Nazareth Food Bank of Lehigh Valley to benefit the needy, hungry, and homeless. The clinic was extremely successful, raising over 400 canned food items with 70 kids participating in the day’s event! Check out our media page to look at more pictures from the day! We look forward to making the Kicking4Hunger Clinic an annual event!
We are overwhelmed! Rancocas Valley Regional High School, located in Mt. Holly, New Jersey, has pledged nearly $5,000 to Athletes C.A.R.E. as part of their Red and White Night event. This month long series of events and competitions that allows students to come together as a school and as a community. As part of the competition, the Red Team and White Team compete to raise the most money for a charity or cause selected by the team’s captains. These amazing individuals chose to donate to our organization, raising a total of close to $5,000 for our cause. We could not be more thankful for their amazing act of kindness – you have all made an immense impact on the lives of so many, while helping us in the fight against hunger, homelessness, and poverty. Thank you again!

Our 60-day, ‘ALL-OR-NOTHING’ Campaign is 20 days in! In just 20 days, we have reached 78% of our $1,000 goal, putting us at $775 raised. We could not be happier with our progress thus far and are excited for the remaining 40 days, with hopes of surpassing our $1,000 goal and raising as much money as possible for the women and children of the Roof Over homeless shelter.

Athletes C.A.R.E. is pleased to announce our first official branch of the organization at Stevens Institute of Technology. After talks with various student-athletes at Stevens, we have decided to engage in a partnership that will allow the student-athletes of Stevens to follow our lead and engage in our community service projects, fundraisers, donation drives, and the like. Our missions will be the same, and they will be carrying out the work of the organization at Stevens and in the surrounding community in hopes of spreading our reach and expanding the influence of the Athletes C.A.R.E. organization.
Cannot thank the individuals involved in this process enough. We are very excited to engage in this type of relationship with the goal of further serving the needy, hungry, and homeless.
