As our organization continues to grow, we want to edit and improve our media sources to make sure information about our resources and events is getting out to everyone who needs it as easily as possible. This spring, our website underwent a major change, and we are hoping to keep updating the site to improve the volunteer sign-up process, provide regularly updated newsletters, allow community members in need to contact us easily through the site, and show others all of the hard work we do here at North Hills Cares! Thank you for being patient as we undergo these changes. Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram at instagram.com/northhillscares and like us on Facebook at facebook.com/northhillscares!

Thank YOU for celebrating with us again this year!
We are so thankful for everyone who brought food items to #FillTheSleigh and gave monetary donations to help those in need in our community.
Thank you to all of the school ensembles, interactive music and acting groups, and volunteers who shared their time and talent with us to make for a wonderful weekend. We loved seeing everyone’s smiling faces and listening to the amazing music!
