Our Mission

Over the past 10 years CARE Inner City Missions Inc, a non-profit organization, has had the opportunity to serve and provide hope and help to more than 10,000 people each year. It is our mission to encourage and empower people in the Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill areas by serving them in the areas most needed. 


Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive

We have provided over a thousand families with Thanksgiving Dinners for the holidays.  We serve Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill.  We also are partnered with 12 schools in the Durham and Raleigh area that we provide meals to.  Each bag includes a 10-12lb turkey, and the different sides to complete a Thanksgiving meal.  On the Third Saturday of November we load two 26ft Uhaul trucks and take one to Raleigh and the other one to Durham and give out these Thanksgiving bags to people in the community.


Annual Backpack Drive

The annual Back to School Drive provides backpacks and supplies for student’s K-8 who are in need and in low-income communities.  We have blessed communities in Durham such as: McDougald Terrace, Cornwallis, Boys and Girls Club in Raleigh NC, and Hargraves Recreation Center in Chapel Hill serving nearly 1000-1200 kids yearly.


Annual Toy Drive

The holidays can be hard for families and we try to help families have a great holiday by providing gifts to children in low-income families who may not be able to get anything without our help.  The names of the children are provided through social workers at the schools we are partnered with and also from requests from people in the communities we serve.  Each child receives multiple gifts in their Christmas bag. CARE Inner City Missions Inc has been able to bless over 500 children each year with gifts for Christmas.


Missions at the MAC (McDougald Terrace)

This program was created so that we can be a greater impact within the community by partnering with McDougald Terrace which is one of the underserved communities in the area.  We have provided food for their food pantry, clothing and shoes for children, and anything else that they may need.  We strive to encourage healthy attitudes and lifestyles that will enable early adolescent girls to develop to their full potential.  With your donation we will be able do more at McDougald Terrace that will benefit those who live there.
