Chantal Fulgencio, whose family runs Just Care Back, took a moment to speak with Pocono Update about the work their nonprofit does to help Monroe County residents in need. “Just Care Back local is a nonprofit organization. We’re centered on sharing and caring, building community, and making connections,” said Fulgencio. “We work locally with the Stroudsburg Wesleyan homeless shelter, which is the only overnight shelter in the community. And, we also do a family project in Grenada, which is where my family is from.”
Just Care Back provides school supplies, food, medicine, toiletries, and more for children and families in need. A large part of their funding comes from local businesses that donate money and gift baskets for Just Care Back to raffle at fundraisers and pop-up events. 100% of proceeds from pop-up events go back into the charity and other local causes.
The mission started with Chantal’s mother, who used to be a teacher in Grenada, anticipating the needs of her students and others. Established in 2004, Just Care Back is a service-oriented team that focuses on helping and empowering our local community in NEPA as well as our sister communities in Grenada, Carriacou, and Haiti with essential supplies and resources.
Just Care Back will be at the Stroudfest this weekend, hosting another fundraiser to benefit the cold weather shelter opening in November and their Haiti Missions.
