We exist to create smiles through giving. 


Learn more about our purpose.


Germaine Cares Foundation was founded in 2012 by TaNisha McKenzie after her late brother, Germaine Dawson. He graduated from Rockdale High School where he participated in many sports such as football, basketball and baseball. He received many awards for his participation and went on to become Mr. Rockdale High School his senior year. He continued his education at the University of North Texas where he received a full Football scholarship and was due to graduate in May of 2009. Germaine's life however was cut short in March of 2009 weeks before celebrating his birthday in April. Germaine enjoyed working with youth where he was a part of the Dallas Boys and Girls Club and mentored those in his hometown of Rockdale, Texas. He had plans to work with youth after graduation and although his life was cut short, his sister plans to do so in his honor.

We support teams and individuals through sponsorship. Involvement in extra curricular activities can teach many things such as teamwork, confidence and leadership.

Holidays should be a cheerful time and we make it so by providing dinner and gifts to families in need. Join us annually to help with our Adopt- a- Family!
Education provides the tools needed to succeed in life. We support continuing education through scholarship.
