This program is a way for students to give to charitable organizations, and learn the impact that these organizations play in the community. CCNN’s mission is to help the elderly, chronically ill, and disabled to bridge the gaps between needed ser-
vices. CCNN was honored to be selected out of so many great organizations. This funding will help serve those in need, and make a difference where it counts the most. CNNN “cannot say thank you enough to the Binghamton University Philanthropy Student Program for giving CCNN the opportunity to continue to support our community.”
