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.
This summer has been all about progress for Athletes C.A.R.E. After a very successful start to 2013, we unveiled our new look earlier this summer. Take a look at the new logo and info-picture below! Hope you enjoy the new look as much as we do – cannot wait to get out and serve those in need this Fall!
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!
As part of our continued efforts to serve the needy, hungry, and homeless, we will be running a Kicking4Hunger Event hosted at the Metzgar Athletic Complex of Lafayette College. The soccer clinic will take place on Sunday, April 21st from 1pm to 4pm, taught by Lafayette College Men’s and Women’s Soccer Players. The clinic is open to children ages 5 to 11. Here’s how it works: Instead of paying a fee to participate in the clinic, it is asked that children and their families bring canned food items as their cost to participate. These food items will then be donated directly to a Lehigh Valley Area Food Bank to help those in need. It’s pretty simple! Children get to learn from and play with Division I soccer players in a 3 hour clinic of all sorts of fun and games…and all they have to do is bring canned food to help the community! It’s truly and awesome cause and we certainly hope to see you or your children at the day’s event. Sign up your child by clicking the ‘SIGN UP’ link below. All information regarding the time, date, and location are listed below.
DATE: Sunday, April 21st
TIME: 1pm to 4pm
LOCATION: Metzgar Athletic Complex, Lafayette College
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!
We’ve reached 78% of our goal of $1,000 for the Roof Over for Women and Children 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.
Student-Athletes at Stevens have joined the mission of Athletes C.A.R.E., taking our mission to their school.
