CANS - Celebrate Nursing Event 2022
Friday from 5:30 PM - 10:30 PM CDT
The purpose of this campaign is to raise funds for a nursing scholarship fund at Carthage associated with the Carthage Association of Nursing Students(CANS). These scholarships will be awarded to those students that are members of CANS.
Student members of this organization provide service hours and volunteer for many different Kenosha and Racine are community groups. Members also learn how to advance in the nursing profession through educational opportunities and events. Your gifts to this campaign will support all of these efforts that help our students, as well as the communities around Carthage.
Members of CANS have volunteered with Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago by making virtual Valentine's Day cards and fundraising to buy toys and gifts for their pediatric cancer patients. CANS students have also fundraised for "Cancer Kiss My Cooley", which provides pediatric cancer patients and their families enjoyable experiences to create special and lasting memories.
In the Kenosha community, CANS members made over 100 blessing bags filled with non-perishable food, razors, hats, gloves, scarves, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and other items for both the Woman and Children Horizons and The Shalom Center. These members have also held a "cans for CANS" food drive to benefit The Shalome Center and Women and Children's Horizons.
Make your gift now to support these incredible nursing students!
