What we do


PreK-at-Home Program

Annual Kid's Shoe Drive

PreK-at-Home Program

The Sisterhood Chapter of the Buns Care Charity provides a free PreK-at-Home program for families unable to afford traditional preschool. Children with PreK experience start Kindergarten at a huge advantage.

PreK-at-Home Program

Each spring the Buns Care Charity awards modest college scholarships to one or two local graduating seniors.  These are motivated, high-acheivers who otherwise do not qualify for assistance.

Once a year, just after Thanksgiving the  the Charity enlists the help of Northwest Indiana businesses and citizens to get hundreds of pairs of new shoes on the feet of some of our less fortunate children. A wonderful event involving the entire community.
