Cameron Wood is a big-hearted neighborhood! We have so many charities and fundraisers going on, all organized by CW residents. We'd like to put them all in one place so everyone has a quick reference. They are: 
  • Krist Longley's Angel Tree: "Please click on the button below to view information about this family of 10 that I have grown to love over the years. Please sign up and help me love on the Cunninghams! Thank you in advance!" Sign up here: Angel Tree Project 2017

Please help me spread the Christmas cheer by signing up to help them!" Making Christmas Bright for a Levine Children's Hospital Family
  • Mark Norman's fundraiser for Chef Darius: "As an employee of Johnson & Wales I felt that God had put me in Darius' path. His story is similar to others who come from poverty: being raised by his grandmother along with two sisters (one older and one younger), dealing with financial, educational and social issues."

  • Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PCAN) is a United States-based charity that funds research, provides patient support, conducts community outreach, and advocates for increased federal research funding for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic cancer.  It was established in 1999, and has raised awareness for pancreatic cancer with the help of businesses and other groups.  The network raises funds for pancreatic cancer research through its “Purple Stride” walkathons, which are organized by its affiliates in various local communities. (recommended by Bernane Songco)
