Founded 30 years ago by Maggie Phipps and a small group of caring and dedicated housewives that volunteered their time, Community Caring and Sharing started small, providing food and clothing assistance to just a few families in the Indianapolis community of Mars Hill.

For many years in the beginning Community Caring and Sharing operated from small facilities such as, church basements, rental storage units, even a small converted residence. In Spring 2000, a caring Indianapolis business man, Mr. Eldon Palmer, generously donated a former school building in the Mars Hill, Indianapolis Area, where they could expand the base of operations to carry out the mission.

After a few hard years of initial renovation  Community Caring and Sharing was able to officially use its new operations/food pantry facility in late 2002. Before long they where able to expand adding several educational programs and becoming a center for the community and local improvement with Education and Support Programs and Food Panties, Charity . With continual improvements and maintenance regularly.

we thank everyone who has made it possible
