Community support makes annual CAN coat drive a success again

The Community Assistance Network (CAN) would like to thank the community for its generosity once again for our annual coat drive.

We would like you to know that because of you we were able to distribute 122 adult coats and 270 children’s coats for a total of 392 coats. This is 142 more coats given away than last year.

Congratulations! The remaining coats were distributed at CAN.

We would also like to thank KCRE/KPOD, Bicoastal Media, Chetco Federal Credit Union, Wild Rivers Smile Foundation and all the coat-cleaning angels who donated their time to make sure everyone had a warm, clean coat. There is no way we could do what we do without all your support.

Our community is like no other that I have ever been in. If someone needs a helping hand, all you need to do is reach out and the community is there for you. We all should be proud of being a member of such a great community.
Once again, Community Assistance Network wants to thank everyone for your help.
