Community Action Committee Offers Three Holiday Programs
In November, there’s “Turkey for Cape Codders”. In December, for Cape Cod teens, there’s “Make a Teen Happy!” and for children of the Town of Barnstable we distribute “Toys for Tots”. Community partners promote and support these activities with volunteers and donations. Registration is required.
Make a Teen Happy
“Make a Teen Happy” Gift cards provided to families with teenagers (13-18 years of age) to buy needed winter clothing.
Toys for Tots
CACCI is one of the distributors for the Cape Cod Toys for Tots program. Participant families must live in the Town of Barnstable; children (newborns to 12 years of age) receive at least one toy from their wish list.
Turkey for Cape Codders
