President --- Teri Sellers
First VP ----- Joyce Van Ornam
Second VP -- Gladys Mabey
Secretary --- Roxie Forrest
Treasurer --- Debby Dennington

The organization’s founder, Rayma Scalzo, serves as a permanent ex-officio member of the Board. All residents of PebbleCreek are members of Kare Bears and there are no membership dues. The basic function of the non-profit group is to support and assist residents who may be ill, physically

The Kare Bears organization has not held an annual support campaign since 2013, thanks to the generous contributions we have received during that time.  This year, Kare Bears is once again reaching out to you to help support us.  For those who are new to PebbleCreek, Kare Bears is a “neighbors helping neighbors” non-profit 501 (C)(3) organization managed and run by PebbleCreek volunteers who care about the well-being of their neighbors.

Our community has more than 4,600 homes, and as in any non-profit organization, we are always looking for more volunteers, whether it is drivers for medical appointments, unit coordinators, Kare Bears House volunteers, greeters for monthly meetings or healthcare events, or help with fundraising events, etc.  So, if you are looking for a chance to give back to your community, we would love to have you.  Whether you volunteer, provide financial support, or both, you will provide us with the ability to continue all the services we are currently providing to our growing community and expand as needed.

Information regarding the campaign will be mailed in October to all homeowners.  We want to thank all of you who have supported YOUR Kare Bears organization in the past.  PebbleCreek continues to grow, as will Kare Bears, with your support. 

Thank you,
Teri Sellers, Kare Bears President
