Cape Cod Chronicle Summer and Winter Helping Neighbor Drive
Hank Hyora and his wonderful team have run a drive for us for the past eight years and it has become a very important revenue stream for us. There are two campaigns, one in the summer and one in the winter. The paper takes 6-8 weeks and highlights the Pantry and asks the community to support the Pantry through monetary donations. Donations are listed and tracked in the Chronicle each week with a goal of roughly $60,000 annually.
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 place mats 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. Tickets are $20.00 per person and the event is held every April.
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 present The Pantry with a welcomed donation each winter.
