Community Service 2022


Every year, CCANN contributes to the welfare of our community. This year was no exception. We had donated to the following charity organizations:


Fresno Mission:

In responding to the requests of Fresno Mission as the winter months are approaching, CCANN donated a total $520 worth of fleece blankets to the organization. Fresno Mission is a Christ-centered, Evangelical institution that helps the homeless, incarcerated, drug- and alcohol-dependent, poor families, and many more. We hope these blankets will keep some individuals warm at night during the cold winter nights.


Marjaree Mason Center:

Marjaree Mason Center received toiletries ranging from toothpastes, toothbrushes, shampoos, lotions, deodorants, body soaps and lip balms. We recognized that Marjaree Mason Center is a safe house shelter for those who are affected by domestic violence. They also offer legal advice, counseling, crisis support and education, and training.


Ronald McDonald House:

Ronald McDonald House of the Central Valley provides a “Home Away from Home” and resources to children and families. They offer families meals and a clean room, which they need the most. CCANN donated $800 generated from the Panda T-shirt Sales.


Terry’s House:

Terry’s House is an amazing shelter that provides “a home away from home for families with loved ones in critical care at Community Regional Medical Center” to support those experiencing prolonged hospitalization. CCANN donated $800 from the fundraising from the Panda T-shirt sales.


Smile Train:

Smile Train is “changing the world one smile at a time” and “they have helped children in 90 countries and empowered 2100 medical professionals”. They provided cleft surgery, comprehensive cleft service and speech service to those in needed. Smile Train received $1,000 from our chapter. They have a program at this time that all donations will be matched by them. We have donated $2,000 to the Smile Train organization this year.


Make-A-Wish (secure2.wish)

Make-A-Wish is a sick kids’ fairy godmother who grants life-changing wishes of children going through a life-threatening illnesses. CCANN supports the foundation’s mission by donating $1,500 to the organization. Community Service By : Gil-da Aum, BSN, RNC-NIC 10


Central California Community Food Bank:

CCANN has been a long supporter of the local Community Food Bank during the holidays. This year, we have donated $2000 to Community Food Bank. We recognize the Community Food Bank’s concentrated effort to provide food and fund drive to collect money and commercially –packaged and non-perishable items to aid families and individuals facing hunger. The food bank believes that food is a basic human need and people should have easy access to it,


Red Cross:

We were made aware of the record-setting flooding and storm that destroyed many properties in the various communities and destroyed many homes this year. The Red Cross is recognized in providing shelter and relief supplies to those affected by disasters, big and small. CCANN is donating $1,000 to the Red Cross to “support all the Humanitarian Needs” and to alleviate a small token of suffering in times of emergencies.


Toys for Tots:

CCANN has been contributing Toys for Tots annually during the Winter Holiday. Each member’s admission price to the CCANN Christmas event is an unwrapped toy. This year with no exception. The chapter collected many toys to be given to the less fortunate children this Christmas. All these donations were made possible by your generosity. Thank you for purchasing our CCANN merchandise (T-shirts, raffle tickets and more.) We hope to be the change that inspires people to be more generous and to be kind to one another; and somehow, it will have a ripple impact in making a small difference in someone’s life
