Pilgrim Congregational Church - Dinner and Games on the “First Friday” of every month.
March 3, 2017 6:00-9:00 PM Subs, water and juice boxes provided. Bring your own board games or use ours (we have a large variety)! We are offering a free fun family night for our community members, with the hope that the money saved for a night out will be used to “pay it forward” in support of a community charity (we will promote a charity each month.) No gift is too small. Located at: Pilgrim Congregational Church, 533 Route 28, Harwich Port, MA 02646. Call: 508-432-1668 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or directions. 100% of March’s donations will support The Family Pantry of Cape Cod.
Allen Harbor Thanks for Giving Dinner
This is a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings put on by the Members of the Allen Harbor Yacht Club in early November each year. The cost to attend is $15 plus a bag of food for the pantry. Each year the attendees and club member fill the truck with food for us and provide a very generous donation from the sale of the tickets. It is a fabulous event and we are so grateful to them.
Cape Cod Chronicle Neighbor Helping Neighbor Drive
Hank Hyora and his wonderful team have run a drive for us the past seven years and it has become a very important revenue stream for us. For 6 weeks around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays they write feature articles about the pantry and request donations for us. Each week they publish the names of the donors (except those who wish to be anonymous). The Cape Cod Chronicle has raised over $225,000.00 for us through this drive.
The Cape Cod Potters Soup Bowls for Hunger
The Cape Cod Potters have come up with the perfect event for us “Soup Bowls for Hunger”. The potters donate gorgeous bowls that they have made and have a soup dinner at the Cape Cod Technical School. The culinary arts students make the soup and rolls and Girl Scout troops decorate paper plates, donated by Cape Cod Paper which are used first as placemats and then as bags to take the bowls home. The Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank Foundation underwrites the event and the pantry receives a very generous check from the event each year. The Cape Cod Potters have raised close to $200,000.00 through this event. This year (2017) the event will be held on April 12th and tickets will be $18.00.
Macy’s Bag Hunger Program
Macy’s in Hyannis has selected us for their partner in the national Bag Hunger campaign. Each year they encourage employees to donate to the pantry and have in store events for the employees. Macy’s then matches the financial donations resulting in wonderful financial support for the pantry.
Stop & Shop Food For Friends, East Harwich
As part of Stop & Shop’s national campaign, the East Harwich store solicits donations from their customers and presents us with a sizeable check each winter.
TD Bank Affinity Membership Program
TD Bank contributes a percentage of the annual balance in every account whose owner has chosen to affiliate with The Family Pantry. Checking, savings, money markets, CDs and retirement accounts are all included. And there is no limit on the amount of TD Bank’s potential contribution and best of all there is no cost to the person or organization who chooses to affiliate with us. It is TD Bank’s money that is contributed to us.
