About The Caleb Cares Project
The Caleb Cares Project is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization that serves as an outreach in the Clarksville, Montgomery County, Tennessee area. We carry on the love and legacy of Caleb J. Slate by giving to and helping programs that he devoted his time, heart and attention to. Caleb died suddenly on August 12, 2019 at the age of 17. This nonprofit strives to honor him whiling using our hands to love and serve our community in his memory.
Our mission is to benefit, children, youth and families in our community by allowing Caleb’s legacy of love and compassion continue through us. When Caleb died, the community lost someone who cared about people and showed it every day. He was willing to help anyone, anytime and his motivation for all he did was his love for Jesus and his compassion for people.
To give, love and serve genuinely and authentically.
Through us, Caleb’s hands will still give and his heart will still show love.

Northeast High School
At Christmastime, I hang Caleb’s stocking and ask that anyone who visits our home during the holiday season to put any amount of money in his stocking so it will not be empty on Christmas morning. The money is used to purchase new books for Caleb’s high school library. These are the books we donated in 2020.
Donated Life Jackets
On December 12, 2020, exactly 16 months after Caleb’s death, The Caleb Cares Project donated life jackets to The City of Clarksville Pools. Caleb loved his job as a Lifeguard and through our gift, he is still saving lives. Your generous donations made this possible, thank you!
The Out of Darkness Walk
On November 14, 2020, our team participated in a virtual walk sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Our team of 52 raised the most money for the Clarksville Experience. Step by step we walked in Caleb’s memory and honored him by spreading our message of hope, “YOU are a big deal around here!”
Christmas Gifts to Kids In Need
Very regularly, Caleb volunteered at local low income housing neighborhood. He friended many young children there, but 2 boys in particular he cared for deeply. It is tragic that Caleb can no longer be a healthy, loving, friendly influence in their life, so we do it for him. From your donations through the holiday season, we purchased clothes, toys and games for the family he loved so much.
