Dilworth Cares Committee Members and Dilworth Soup Kitchen volunteers enjoyed a terrific evening at the 2017 “Triple B at Triple C” event benefitting the Dilworth Soup Kitchen.

Dilworth Cares is the charitable arm of the Dilworth Community Association, currently functioning as steering committee of 12 members.  Our mission and vision are:

MISSION:  Dilworth Cares exists to facilitate opportunities for each of us, as part of the community, to show our concern for others.

VISION:  Dilworth Cares is committed to promoting opportunities for our neighbors to serve those in need, both financially and through volunteer activities. In addition to publicizing local service opportunities in our neighborhood, we also select a focus agency in our community that becomes the beneficiary of all our fundraising efforts during a specified time period.

Look for updates on volunteer opportunities or fundraising events in the Dilworth Express and the Dilworth Quarterly. For more information about Dilworth Cares, feel free to contact the Dilworth Cares steering committee chair at dilworthcares@gmail.com.  Meetings of the Dilworth Cares steering committee are usually held the first Wednesday of the month at varying times and locations.
