Community Action Network partners with children, youth, and families from under-resourced Washtenaw County neighborhoods to create better futures for themselves, and improve the communities in which they live.
On November 5, UM Professor Emeritus Ward Bissell will give a lecture about Picasso’s anti-war painting Guernica to benefit CAN. The event will include an elegant dinner, followed by Dr. Bissell’s lecture. This is the third of such events – the first two were fabulously interesting, and sold out quickly. Tickets are $100 – only 42 seats are available, and they will go fast! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Our inaugural golf outing was a smashing success thanks to our wonderful sponsors!

We are so grateful for your continued support of CAN!
Our After School Program began in September. You can be a mentor, a leader, and a friend to a student! Please contact email@example.com to get started.
…for supporting CAN’s “Food for Thought” program. CAN received $2000 each from Kiwanis and Darden Restaurants and $1500 from First Congregational Church. The program provides nutritious dinners to CAN students as part of its after-school offerings. When students don’t have to worry about dinner, they can focus on homework, which in turn helps them reach their highest academic potential. Thank you for your support!
Did you know CAN’s Food for Thought program serves 15,000 meals a year? But not without your assistance! Can you make a healthy dinner and/or provide nutritious individual snacks (yogurt, fruit, veggies) for kids in our after school programs? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
