Check out some of our newspaper clippings:
Thanks to the lovely people at the Greene Turtle, our fundraiser last Thursday was a huge success! We spread awareness of our cause and had a lot of fun organizing a 50/50 raffle.
After weeks of planning, our Students-CAN group hosted a dinner at Difebo's Restaurant in Bethany, and 15% of the profits made that night went to our cause! It was a very successful evening that combined raising awareness with delicious Italian food. Thank you to everyone who came and ate, and a huge thank you to the owners and staff of Difebo's for their generosity and support!
Headed to downtown Berlin today to drop off donated items to the Church Mouse Thrift Shop! Students-CAN collected puzzles, books, and clothing for this very deserving local store. A big thank you goes out to everyone who brought in stuff for the drive!
Thanks to an accidental run-in with Ed Chambers at our bake sale fundraiser, we contacted Steve Green, owner of The Dispatch. After an Claire Stickler and Lucas Baier were interviewed by Travis Brown, an article was written about our organization and cause! We deeply appreciate the support and help of everyone who made this happen. thanks!
