New Canaan CARES launches annual appeal
New Canaan CARES has launched its annual appeal for 2012. As many of you know, New Canaan CARES' mission is empowering youth, strengthening families and building community. A local nonprofit, CARES offers programs to youth, parents, educators and the community, focusing on relevant issues and challenges facing our families today. As a board member for the past three years and participant in many programs, CARES has provided valuable information and resources for every member of my family.
Each year, we rely on the generosity of our donors, both individuals and organizations in New Canaan and beyond to fund all of our programs. Just this past fall, we have seen record attendance at our community events, our parenting programs such as Navigating the Teen Party Scene and Social and Emotional Development, and our youth programs in leadership skills through the ages. In order to continue to deliver programs like these and the many requests for new offerings, we need your support. We hope you will consider New Canaan CARES in your annual giving.
Many of you received our newsletter and appeal card recently in the mail and we ask that you visit our website to see all of the great events and programs we have been able to provide this past year. Your support enables us to provide invaluable resources to our community. Thank you.
