Cashiers Cares, Inc. is a non profit organization which raises money for ten local charities. Each December, Cashiers Cares hosts a free lunch and gift market at the Community Center immediately following the Christmas parade.
The ten non-profits put up displays which highlight the work of their organizations and are there to answer questions. Since it was founded six years ago, Cashiers Cares has raised over $100,000 for these worthy groups.
Rotary plays a very important role in the Christmas event, assembling a team of` volunteers who prepare and serve a lunch of hot dogs, chili and drinks for area residents who come to join the fun. On warm days, the smiling Rotary members have served as many as 300 people including lots of kids who come to have their pictures taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus. It is a wonderful community event and one of many the Rotary proudly supports.
