Buy Your Tickets Now! A Picasso lecture to benefit CAN

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 outreach@canannarbor.org for details.

WANTED: After-school Tutors!

Our After School Program began in September. You can be a mentor, a leader, and a friend to a student! Please contact volunteers@canannarbor.org to get started.

Thank You Kiwanis Club of Ann Arbor, First Congregational Church and Darden Restaurants…

…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!

That’s a LOT of Meals!

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 volunteers@canannarbor.org for details.

WHO WE SERVE
