Dilworth Cares is the charitable arm of the Dilworth Community Association, currently functioning as steering committee of 13 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.
