In honor of National Volunteer Week, The Macon County Care Network, (CareNet) held a luncheon last Thursday to recognize the incalculable amount of sacrifice and dedication that members of the community continue to show through volunteering.
CareNet, a non-profit, tax exempt organization, was established in 1988 by churches throughout the county. It is 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 financial assistance along with other necessities, such as prescriptions, utilities, fuel, and rent on an emergency basis.
