Our Story

It began around the family dinner table...

Dr. Don's Care Packages founders — Dr. Don, Wife and CEO Sarah and daughterPresident Shannon at the McCarren family kitchen table.The concept of Doctor Don’s Care Packages was developed over a number of years around our family dinner table. While searching for gifts for friends, co-workers and family who were struggling, we recognized that most gifts express sympathy but are ineffective for promoting wellness. We were astounded by the chasm between a diagnosis, loss, or challenge and knowing how to take the first steps forward. We put our heads together in a concerted effort to fill that chasm and help those in need!

Don McCarren has been a Neurologist for over 20 years and his wife Sarah is a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. Their daughter Shannon McCarren graduated from Belmont University in 2016 with a degree in Public Relations.
