A little over 3 years ago Emily-Smith Mossman, her husband Greg and sister Katie heard of a boy who had no shoes that fit him. He had cut the toes open so he could still wear them. The scoured their own closets and found 2 pairs of gently used sneakers and anonymously gave them to him.
From this simple act of kindness North Country Cares was born. Realizing that if there was one child in need there must be many, Emily put together the first Back To School Giveaway, filling backpacks with school supplies and getting donations of clothing for middle and high school ages, in just 3 weeks time.
