We are very appreciative of your public support of Carenet. Sharing our Facebook page and our events is one of the easiest ways that you can advocate for our cause.
The Macon County Care Network, also known as CareNet, is a non-profit, tax exempt corporation, established in 1988, by churches of Macon County, North Carolina. CareNet is located in Franklin, NC.
We are a non-denominational ministry
which serves as a central location to provide relief for those in crisis. When help from other agencies is either unavailable or insufficient, CareNet provides food and limited financial assistance with other necessities, such as prescriptions, utilities, fuel, and rent on an emergency basis.
CareNet is supported by churches,
donations, grants, and the CareNet Thrift Store (formerly Bargains Galore). The store was started in 1998 to raise money for CareNet clients and program costs. CareNet is fortunate to have wonderful partnerships within the community that host annual fundraisers to support our missions!
+16,500 BackPacks Make an Impact
In 2008, CareNet joined forces with Student Services of Macon County Schools to eradicate childhood hunger, here in Macon County.
Upon its inception, the BackPack (BP) Program distributed approximately 60 BP’s a week to area school children. To date, that number has grown to over 500 a week!
