Webb City CARES provides a bridge between the community and local resources with Webb City R-VII School District surrounding our students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and thereby paving the road to a better tomorrow.

“I believe one of the most important things we can do on this Earth is to help others especially those who are less fortunate. Fortunately, for the children in the WCR-7 School District, we have a community that truly CARES about kids.

I'd like to tell you what I believe we, as a community, are going to do and what we are not going to do.

We are going to help children learn how to read and write. We are going to be positive role models and be mentors to children from a very young age. We are going to lift up those in need and help to build self-esteem to the children that we are blessed to serve. We are going to volunteer for the betterment of our community and our children. We are going to better our community one child at a time. We are going to build a better tomorrow.

We are not going to allow a child to go hungry. We are not going to let children go with out coats, shoes or appropriate clothing. We are not going to see a problem and not at least try to help solve it.”
