Newman Cares Mission Statement

The mission of Newman Cares Inc. is simple: We gather neighbors, friends and family for a block party filled with music, food and fun for everyone of all ages. We charge a nominal entrance fee with proceeds going to charities selected by our Board of Directors. We base those selections on any misfortune suffered by our same neighbors, friends and family.

As we are now a recognized 501(c)(3) organization, we can help other groups do good work, by providing a formal conduit for donations from their events as well as getting involved in any way we can.

Moving forward, we will continue evolving and finding new ways to help others.

We are the Block Party with a Heart!
