Our Mission

So many charitable organizations are facing a barren fundraising landscape—a desert, you might say—and Camels With a Cause is dedicated to bringing on the oasis. Whether that relief comes in the form of cash, cans of food, or hands on deck, we’re bringing the heat…or shade.

 

Founded in 2008, Camels With a Cause (CWAC) is a fundraising and volunteering initiative designed to support charitable organizations. All of our efforts are led by our passionate staff at 300 10th Avenue South.
