Children’s Cove, the Cape & Islands child advocacy center, has worked with partner agencies, community service organizations, members of the faith community and nonprofit groups to provide much-needed items to dozens of families and hundreds of children in the fall and winter, according to a statement from the organization.
In the fall, through donations from the community, more than 40 children and youth were given backpacks, lunchboxes and items from school supply lists, according to the statement. The Knights of Columbus donated nearly 30 winter jackets for kids and teens and Katelynn’s Closet in South Yarmouth also provided winter jackets and nearly 20 bags of clothing. Harbor Church in Hyannis donated full Thanksgiving baskets for eight families through donations from their members.
Toys for Tots donated nearly 50 bags of toys for the holiday season and the student athlete advisory committee at Massachusetts Maritime Academy also donated dozens of bags and hundreds of toys, according to the statement. The Yarmouth Police Department raised more than $3,000, which went directly to holiday needs for kids and teens; toy and gift card donations were also received from the Cape Cod Times and Cape Cod Young Professionals.
