Giving Back to Caretakers and Seniors

The Castle Cares Foundation is excited to be able to help those who serve as caregivers and to seniors who have served their community for many years. We plan to do this via Healthcare Educational Scholarships, Emergency Assistance and Granting Wishes. During the COVID-19 pandemic the whole world saw the vital role that healthcare workers play and how painful it can be to lose a loved one. This is our way of giving back.

We encourage you to get involved! For questions or if you are interested in donating or volunteering you can contact Kevin Kiefer at
