Community Action Network adheres to the same closure policies as Ann Arbor Public Schools (and Lincoln Consolidated Schools for Brick Community Center). This means, for most of our community centers, if AAPS are closed, so are we.
In the case of the recent announcement that there are confirmed cases of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in Michigan, AAPS (and CAN) are closely following the CDC Guidelines.
Governor Whitmer instituted Executive Order No. 2020-21, which states that residents remain in their places of residence to the maximum extent feasible, which will take effect on March 24, 2020 and will continue through April 13, 2020.
CAN's food programs at Bryant, Arrowwood Hills, Green Baxter Court, and Hikone will remain in operation during this time, but center hours will be shifting to maintain the safety of our families, staff, and volunteers. CAN's After School Programs will remain closed when AAPS and Lincoln Consolidated are closed, which as of today, will be through April 13.
Please view a community center's web page to check the most up-to-date center hours.
Thanks to the incredible support and collaboration with Food Gatherers, AAPS, and other community organizations and volunteers, CAN will also be able to adjust food orders and increase deliveries to help fill more of the community need.
