Tosa Cares is an all volunteer organization which collects non-perishable food items, personal care items, clothing and school supplies for distribution to families in need.
Donated items and fresh foods, purchased using cash donations, are distributed at seven “Food Packs” each year. In addition, individual emergency food distributions are made available when needed.
Tosa Cares is supported by members of the community and through groups like the Suburban Woman’s Club of Wauwatosa, Kiwanis Club of Wauwatosa, Wauwatosa School Key Clubs, boy and girl scout troops and several area churches.
Families who are in need of assistance have been referred to Tosa Cares by several sources in the community.
Tosa Cares is located in Wauwatosa and is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit charity.
