Seasonal Programs

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.

Registration for these programs will begin in October.
