China Spring Cares has 3 main programs happening during the year: Summer Food Program, Back To School, and Christmas Assistance. We also handle other individual needs for students as they arise during the school year.
SUMMER FOOD PROGRAM:
We provide each student with a bag of food every Wednesday for the entire summer. Through your generous donations we are able to include 5 ready to eat meals plus snacks to make sure our students have lunch through the summer.
What does a typical bag include?
1 water, 2 juice boxes, 1 pop top meal, 1 tuna meal, 2 fruit cups, 2 pudding cups, 2 cereals, 2 pkg pop tarts, 2 granola bars, 2 pkg crackers, 1 oatmeal, 2 mac & cheese, 1 apple

BACK TO SCHOOL:
Every August CSC provides brand new tennis shoes, socks, underwear, a backpack and school supplies to over 100 students.
Students also go “shopping” in the clothes room for new school clothes.
Community members “adopt a Cougar” and purchase the shoes, socks, and underwear. They also donate new and gently worn clothes for the clothes room. CSC provides the backpacks and school supplies.
CHRISTMAS ASSISTANCE PROGRAM:
Every December CSC helps volunteers to "adopt" a student and purchase a few things from their wish list. The students also shop for warm clothes in the CSC clothes room.
