CAN sponsors several important drives throughout the year to benefit deserving and needy individuals in our community.

Here are the dates for our upcoming drives: Kids in Need of Dentistry Drive—Feb 2016. Collect children’s toothbrushes and dental floss to benefit the Kids in Need of Dentistry (KIND) Drive. KIND will give donated items to children of families who cannot afford such necessities. As the country’s oldest dental charity, founded in 1912, KIND helps meet the needs of under served children.

Roll out the Barrels Food Drive—July 2016 This project benefits the Metro Caring. Metro Caring is a non profit hunger relief organization that operates one of the largest food pantries in Denver. Metro Caring provides emergency and self-sufficiency services to low-income and homeless individuals. By donating food to Metro Caring, you assist us in eradicating hunger in Denver.
