Dear Friends,

I am excited to announce that all new donations to our COVID-19 relief efforts will be matched up to $10,000! That means that your gift now will have twice the impact for neighbors in need of extra help.
This pandemic is an unprecedented challenge for our community. Your support has already been incredibly helpful as we work to adapt our programs to these new circumstances, and we will continue to need your help over the weeks and months to come.

In the meantime, this newsletter features some of the incredible things that CAN has been able to accomplish in just a few short days thanks to countless collaborations with government agencies, congregations, volunteers, other nonprofits, and more. It has been so heartening to see the Washtenaw County community come together to care for one another during this difficult time.

Thank you and take care,
Derrick Miller, Executive Director
Program Highlights
CAN's food pantries and distributions at the Arrowwood Hills, Bryant, Hikone, and Green Baxter Court Community Centers remain open with extended hours. At BCC's first post-pandemic food distribution on Wednesday morning, CAN staff and volunteers served over 40 clients by 10:30am alone! Food Gatherers is generously providing additional deliveries as needed to keep up with increased demand, and Ann Arbor YMCA , Neutral Zone , and other volunteers are helping CAN offer home grocery deliveries to elderly and high-risk clients.

Ann Arbor Public Schools are delivering breakfasts and lunches to the above CAN community centers, in addition to other sites throughout Ann Arbor, through spring break.

CAN is providing take-home dinners for school-aged children and families at the above community centers. This week, Chef Allison from Last Bite Chef LLC has donated dinners for all four of these centers. Pictured here are a two of her delicious creations; pasta with broccoli and turkey tacos. Thanks Chef Allison!

Children's Literacy Network dropped off packages filled with books, a literacy activity calendar, and info on CLN's interactive reading website to each CAN community center. The BCC team was thrilled to welcome CLN Executive Director, Betsy (center), to Bryant.
