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 scholarship and was due to graduate in May of 2009. Germaine's life however was cut short in March of 2009 shortly before celebrating his birthday in April. Germaine enjoyed working with youth.

Some are fortunate enough to join in extracurricular sports activities whereas others are not. We support teams and individuals through sponsorship.

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.

Together, we can make a difference

To help those within and outside of our communities requires many hands. We've got successes under our belt, but we need more help, and that's where you come in. 

Contact us to learn more or assist us in opportunities and ideas for donating, fundraising, hosting events, campaigning, buying gifts, and involving your school or company. The more help we receive, the more smiles we can create.
