Fundraising 2022

 

CCANN is excited to announce the 2022 T-Shirt fundraisers! This year’s designs were voted on at the June CCANN Dinner & Learn event held at Campaigna Restaurant and generously sponsored by CeraVe. The “NICU Crew” design highlights a sweet panda bear and will be available on grey t-shirts for $20. Presale of the NICU Crew t-shirts will begin August 1st and can be purchased with cash from Gilda Aum here, or via Venmo directly. The “Merry & Bright” holiday t-shirt will add a festive touch to your shift with an adorable gingerbread girl and heart-shaped stethoscope. Presale of the Merry & Bright shirts will begin November 15th. All funds raised will be added to the general fund and applied to various projects throughout the year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Helping Hands

Thank you, Siri!

 

Fresno Marjaree Mason Center: CCANN continues to recognize our mission of advocacy to support women and children who have been domestically abused through the support of Fresno Marjaree Mason Center. Fresno Marjaree Mason has been “Fresno County’s only dedicated provider of domestic shelter and support service, including education for victims and support of the community. In November, CCANN donated 3 boxes of toiletries.

 

American Red Cross: CCANN supported American Red Cross for its provision of emergency assistance, disaster relief including flooding and fire, and disaster preparedness education in the United States. Under the leadership of our fundraising chair, Kim Collins, BSN, money was raised from sales of candied apple vouchers and her personally hand-crafted “Boo”T-shirts. $2,000 was donated to American Red Cross. We hope this donation can make a difference in people’s lives.
