The 2024/25 school year will be here before we know it! Help ensure CAN families are prepared for the first day by contributing to our Back to School Drive. 

Backpacks and school supplies can be a big expense. No one should have to choose between buying school supplies or paying for things like food and rent. With your help, CAN’s Back to School Drive ensures families don’t have to.

Contribute Your Way!
