Cap & Gown
As our first effort of 2024, CI Connects For Change is fundraising to provide graduation cap and gowns to class of 2024 graduating seniors! Thanks to community donors, last year, we were able to gift 20 seniors with pre-paid cap and gowns. This year, CI Connects will again be gifting 20 graduates with cap and gowns and we are hoping that the community will match our donation!
We’re asking for contributions of $40 from the public to help us exceed last year’s numbers!
