The Take a Gander Raffle was developed in partnership with JA-NEO. This partnership is extremely important during this time, as these organizations share a mandate to create an inclusive environment in our schools and communities. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, JA-NEO and CPD have had to adjust their programs, including creating digitalized financial literacy programs for schools and ensuring new measures are accessible to all. Now more than ever we need the help of our community – because we’re all in this together.
