Can YOU Help?

4 Ways to Make a Difference TODAY...
1. Donate money: Your financial contribution to CANI supports programs, services, and initiatives that promote economic and community development. Not sure where to begin? Donating to our general fund will do the most good, since it allows us to use your donation where it is needed most. 

2. Educate:  The first step in helping end poverty is talking about poverty. Contact CANI about having us do a presentation for your business, social club, church, school, neighborhood association, or community group.

3. Volunteer at a Poverty Simulation: Did you know you can make a difference in as little as four hours? CANI regularly facilitates an awareness event known as a Poverty Simulation, and therefore depends on the help of volunteers to execute them. Contact Jennifer Renner, for more information, or to sign up to be on the volunteer list.

4. Refer a Student:  The objective of JAG (Jobs For America’s Graduates), is to assist high school juniors and seniors at risk of not graduating high school get back on track and successfully graduate. Do you know a student who might benefit from this program?
