Ways to Help

We are working to build 16 affordable homes by the end of 2020. To begin building, we need to raise $850,000. Here are some ways you can help:

  1. Volunteer.

Care Association currently has no one on payroll. We are all volunteers. It takes more time and more planning, but we are doing it. We need help with marketing, communications, web development, back-end engineering, Salesforce administration, volunteer management, and fundraising.

We will also need help building.  To help with construction or landscaping, please send us a message on our Contact page.

Another way to volunteer is to ask sellers at garage sales in San Francisco to donate their leftovers to the Community Thrift Store on behalf of Care Association.

  1. Donate goods (in the San Francisco Bay Area).

Bring your unwanted but salable clothes, furniture, housewares, tools, art, and electronics to at the Community Thrift Store at 623 Valencia Street in San Francisco.  The store accepts donations 10am-5pm any day of the week including weekends. Tell them you want to support Care Association. Please do not bring items that are not salable as listed on their website.

  1. Donate money.

We accept credit cards.  We also accept donations on Facebook.  Mail checks to Care Association, c/o Kiai Kim, PO Box 14471, San Francisco, CA 94114.

Most donations will be used to build homes.  Our operating expense is very low.  All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

  1. Donate land.

We are looking for lots in Sonoma County, California, at least 8,000 square feet with access to city services, notably a sewer system. Septic systems unfortunately are not accepted at this time.  Your land donation may be tax-deductible.

  1. Follow and Share.

Tweet, ‘gram, post, and share articles on social media. Email your contacts and tell them about us. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. Recommend us on Nextdoor.

  1. Shop through smile.Amazon.com and choose Care Association.

To find us, type “Care Association.” We are about 11 organizations down the list.

  1. Sell something on eBay.

Visit our eBay charity page and click Add to My Favorites. Then choose Care Association to donate part or all of your sales.

Thank you!

We appreciate your support and wish the very best to you and yours.
