World Care's mission is to help create sustainable communities by refurbishing, reusing, recycling, and redistributing goods for people in need.
Our vision of the future is of a world where there is no waste, and of communities where there is no want. By collecting and distributing surplus supplies that may have otherwise been thrown into landfills, we make our community - and the world - a better place.
World Care started in 1993 when a group traveled to Guatemala to assess rural health facilities. They found that the most pressing need was for basic necessities such as educational and medical supplies. Trips expanded to include other countries, and in 1996, led to the formation of World Care.
Today, World Care addresses poverty in the Tucson community through the refurbishment and redistribution of donated goods from the community.
