Care to Learn Comes to Cape


Care to Learn is an organization started in 2007 by Doug Pitt, who saw that many children needed help in Springfiield, MO. Many were going to school without basic things like toothbrushes, coats, and food, thus hindering their education. Pitt immediately partnered with businessman Jim D. Morris, who helped set up a fund. They started Care to Learn with the goal to help solve three basic needs for school children: health, hunger, and hygiene. Cape Girardeau is now the organization’s 19th chapter, with others spread out all over the Ozarks. Pitt establishes emergency funds for schools to access when these needs need to be addressed. With 4,200 students in the Cape Girardeau school district Care to Learn is a much welcomed facility.
