CARES is a tax-exempt, status 501(c) (3) corporation. Contributions are
tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
How You Can Help: We depend on financial contributions and we
greatly appreciate all financial contributions we receive through the Combined
Federal Campaign (# 7456), the United Way and other funds. You can
also make a donation directly to Burke CARES.
Our members are all volunteers and our purpose is to help members of
our community who have resources to come to the aid of members who
need those resources. We're open to everybody and are determined to help
create a community of residents aware of each other's needs and helping
to meet those needs. If you want to help us, please see our programs
and services, and requests.

Where: We serve the members of Burke
Centre and the larger Burke
community, in Fairfax County,
about twenty miles southwest of Washington, D.C. (part of the D.C. metroplex)
Why: Not everyone in our community is equally well off. Some
of us need help with education, employment, job training, transportation,
healthcare, childcare, or other matters. Others have the resources to help
meet those needs, but may not be aware of who needs help or what kind of
help is needed.
