CANA Announces Fundraising/Membership Drive to Raise $3,500

CANA is pleased to announce that Memorial Day 2020 is the official “kick-off” date for our Fundraising/Membership Drive Campaign.

 The purpose of this campaign is to engage our neighbors in creating a safer and more beautiful community.

“CANA wants to encourage friends and neighbors to invest in our neighborhood”, said Jeff Bennett (CANA President).  He continued, “we not only want folks to support community projects that enhance our quality of life and create civic pride, but we are also looking for volunteers interested in serving others through one of our committees, like our Crime Watch and Volunteer-In Patrol Committees.”

By becoming a member and supporting our 2020 campaign at the $25, $50, $75, $100 levels (or higher), you will automatically become a CANA member.

This year the CANA Board has committed to raise $3,500 to achieve the following (4) goals:

  • Install a new and more permanent Claremont sign at the corner of Ferguson Road & Claremont Drive–$2000
  • Purchase three Pet Waste Stations on the Bayles campus–$500
  • Purchase school uniforms and supplies for Bayles students –$500
  • Raise funds for general operations and special events, like National Night Out–$500

The CANA Board is demonstrating their support for this campaign by participating 100% and has raised more than $500 in initial funding.  “Our hope is that the Board’s support funds will be a catalyst and call-to-action to encourage the rest of our friends and neighbors to give generously”, said Joyce Smith (CANA Treasurer).

“We are committed to making CANA a great place to live, that’s why I stepped up and became the organization’s Vice-President,” said Maranda Diener.  Debbie Shaw, CANA Secretary, echoed this sentiment, “I joined because I want to make a difference.  This is a beautiful and diverse community and one reason me and my husband have chosen to live here for more than 30 years.”
