KARE for Kids, Inc. is a non-profit organization providing Christmas for underprivileged children. We hold a fund-raiser each year, The Mountain Moonshine Festival, to finance our goals. We also take donations from groups, businesses or organizations. Every penny raised goes towards the children of Dawson County. We provided Christmas to 755 children in the 2012 Christmas season. Thanks to all of our volunteers and sponsors.

KARE for Kids, Inc. (formerly known as the StarBright Foundation) is a group of local volunteers who are committed to brighten the lives of less fortunate children in Dawson County, Georgia. Each year many children are given eye glasses, school supplies, a winter coat, toys, clothing and a very special Christmas. The StarBright Foundation began in 1993 and is a year-round source of assistance for the children of our community. We are a non-profit 501c3 volunteer organization.

There are many civic organizations, churches, businesses and individual families that have joined in the effort to make sure all of the children in Dawson County have a Christmas that they deserve. We appreciate all of these groups. They help KARE by sponsoring children for Christmas; make their business a toy drop off as well as financial support. Thanks to all of the many civic organizations, churches, businesses and individual families, KARE for Kids was able to provide Christmas to 755 kids in 2012.

KARE for Kids is always in need of volunteers; please let us know if you are interested. A lot of work goes into what we try to accomplish. If you have an interest in volunteering with KARE, would like to sponsor a child(ren) this Christmas or would like to make a monetary donation, please call 706-216-KARE (5273).
