About Krewes Kare

The Krewes Kare Mission will Continue: Getting Supplies to “First-Responders” in Disaster Areas inaccessible to larger relief agencies in partnership with Angel Flight Southeast.

Krewes Kare is a 501(c)3 charitable organization comprised of volunteers from the 50+ krewes in the Tampa Bay area that are best known for their individual and collective participation in parades and events as well as their own charitable contributions to the community. These krewes are also members of the Inter-krewe Council (IKC), the liaison organization that provides information to all krewe members regarding parades and events and also promotes a spirit of friendship and camaraderie among members of all krewes. More…
