The Holidays Are The Time For ‘Helping Neighbors’

Each year between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, the Cape Cod Chronicle invites its readers to send contributions to the Family Pantry of Cape Cod as part of our Helping Neighbors campaign.  Last year, with support from dozens of Cape Cod Chronicle readers – and a remarkable last-minute donation from an anonymous contributor – the 2016 “Helping Neighbors” campaign to benefit the Family Pantry met its fundraising goal of $60,000.

This year saw our first-ever summertime Helping Neighbors campaign, which raised a stunning $149,595, harnessing the generosity of summer residents and visitors.  But now it’s time again for year-rounders to do their part during our holiday campaign.

Each week between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, The Chronicle will be sharing the stories of The Family Pantry, its clients and its incredible volunteers.  This year has been a watershed one for the organization, which now allows clients to receive bags of groceries every two weeks, rather than the three-week limit they’ve used for years.  The result is a big increase in food distribution, more clients, and less food insecurity for local families.

We invite you to join us in supporting the Helping Neighbors campaign this holiday season.  Once again, our goal for the campaign is $60,000.  If every Cape Cod Chronicle subscriber gave just $7.50, we’d meet the goal with room to spare.
