Project C.A.N. XVII is a Special Project under NUS Students’ Community Service Club in its 17th iteration! Project C.A.N. XVII stands for Collection in Aid of the Needy and also Care Packs in Appreciation of our Nurses.
In the past few years, the club has conventionally distributed food necessities to the financially underprivileged in our community. In view of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the project has evolved to include healthcare workers in our target group too.
The club seeks to raise funds to:
1. Provide $40 worth of supermarket vouchers to 550 needy households
2. Provide care packs and appreciation notes for 2500 healthcare workers
