SCAN’s Croquet Day event raises vital funds for its child abuse and neglect prevention programs across Northern Virginia. In fact, funds from events like this not only constitute 19% of SCAN’s yearly budget, but also represent the most flexible funding SCAN receives – which enables us to respond to community needs more effectively and efficiently.
