Agency Overview

For hundreds of kids in Nixa, school isn’t just a place for learning. It’s
a shelter. A kitchen. A refuge from suffering. For these kids, hygiene needs go
unmet. Meals are few. And clothes rarely fit. They come to school distracted by
hunger and limited by embarrassment—their education an afterthought to survival.
It’s for these kids that Care to Learn was created.

The Mission of Care to Learn is to provide immediate funding to meet emergent needs in the areas of health, hunger and hygiene so every student can be successful in school. A toothbrush. A coat. Deodorant. Breakfast. These are the things that stand between children and belonging—basic unmet needs that cause pain and embarrassment.
