COMMITTED TO CARING...
"As natural as it is to breathe air, so is the commitment and responsibilty for me to serve, love & bless God's people. At the tender age of 3 years old I knew the importance of sharing. Born the eldest of eight children my first instinct has always been to nurture, to protect and to assist. Even as a child myself I found myself in 3rd grade bringing extra lunches to school for those less fortunate (as if my parents providing for ten ppl weren't already enough lol). Growing up in a house with both parents & my seven siblings set the pace for how I moved throughout my life. I learned the value of giving, serving and appreciating all of God's blessings. My parents would take us to visit the sick & shut in as well as at-risk developmental homes to feed and minister to those in need. My heart's desire is to spread as much Love as I possibly can! Casme' Cares Community Outreach was a vision given to me by God to reach, uplift, encourage, inspire and motivate. "To Whom much is given, much is required" I believe that & I live that."
