Letter: Donate to CAN this holiday season

Dear editor,

Rochelle community! It is that time again to help our Rochelle children that are in need. Rochelle Community Action Network – CAN is asking for your help again this holiday season.

The Annual CAN Christmas Children’s Shopping Trip will have over 225 children referred by our local schools, churches and non-profit agencies because they need basic clothing items. 

Children and a local community volunteer are shuttled to Walmart by the Lee-Ogle Transportation System, treated to a spaghetti dinner and time with Santa.  Without the support of the Rochelle community, this event would not be possible.

If you would like to bless a child this Christmas who is in need, please consider a donation. 100 percent of your donation goes to our children. Any amount is gratefully appreciated!

Checks may be made payable to Community Action Network, P.O. Box 432, Rochelle, IL 61068.   Please send donations by Nov. 30.  Any funds received after this date will be used for next year.

Thank you for your support and the happiest of holidays to you and yours!

Co-sponsored by CAN, Rochelle Noon Kiwanis & Golden K Kiwanis. Our community working together to make a difference for our kids!
