Caring Canes

CARING CANES: Cane Creek’s Service Club

You must be a registered member in order to participate in any Caring Canes activities.  Registration has been closed due to an overwhelming response, so if you are interested in joining, please contact Mr. Sandman.

This year, the Caring Canes are taking on 4 regular service projects - investing our time, talents, and energy to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors on both ends of the age spectrum as well as supporting two other local agencies.  Our focuses will be:

  • The United Way of Asheville / Buncombe County
  • Eblen Charities
  • Flesher’s Fairview Health & Retirement Center
  • YMCA Afterschool Program @ Fairview Elementary School

We will take on regular service projects to support the United Way’s HandsOnAsheville on Wednesday afternoons during Eyetime in Room 231.  All Caring Canes members are welcome to join us any Wednesday afternoon. 

Finally, we will have afterschool trips a few times a month, going to Flesher’s and Fairview Elementary on separate afternoons each month to serve for approximately an hour, departing CCMS at 3:15 and returning by 4:45.   You may choose to go on both trips to both locations, or just one trip to one location each month.  An additional permission slip must be completed for each trip.   Mr Sandman will email the permission slip to you, once we set the dates for those trips.  Extra forms will be linked below and available outside Mr Sandman’s office.  Spaces are limited for each trip, so if you are interested in participating, turn in your completed permission slip ASAP.  If you turn in a permission slip, we are counting on you going.   If for some reason, you need to cancel, please let one of the Club sponsors know.

If you ever have questions, concerns, or ideas, please contact Mr Sandman, Mrs Wrightenberry, or Mrs Wommack.
