The mission of
the Alyssa Cares Foundation is to inspire and encourage
a life-long excitement and passion for literacy by putting
books in the hands
and homes of children in need.
Alyssa loved to
read and from that passion, she provided us many memories
from her own writings and illustrations of short stories and
poems. We hope to pass on her passion to as many children
as we can, especially those in need, who held a special place
in Alyssa's heart.
Note From Joe & Carole
Alyssa Cares Foundation is no longer accepting donations,
as we have decided to end our operation after 15 years. Like
many others, issues with COVID have made it difficult, to
nearly impossible, for us to personally visit the elementary
schools and spend time sharing Alyssa's love of reading with
the children. We have been honored and humbled by your support
over these years."
