The “Decent Place to Live” Campaign Kicks Off with a Grant from Cape Cod 5
January 11, 2019 – “Service above Self” is the motto that Rotary Club members live by, and Cape & Islands Rotary Assistant District Governor, Brad Boyd and the Cape’s nine Rotary Clubs have committed to bringing that motto to life by raising $100,000 for Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod.
The “Decent Place to Live” campaign has kicked off with a generous lead gift of $15,000 from Cape Cod 5, made through their Foundation.
“We are beyond excited and filled with gratitude for Rotary Cape Cod’s generous commitment to help us address the affordable housing crisis on the Cape!” says Wendy Cullinan, Habitat Cape Cod’s Director of Development, “Several Cape Rotaries have supported our work over the years and it has been a pleasure getting to know the members.” After being on a construction site, meeting volunteers, and then hearing first-hand from new home-owners the difference owning their home has meant to them and their families, Rotarian Brad Boyd knew he had to do something, and something big!
“Our members serve their communities every day in many different ways and we couldn’t find a more deserving cape-wide cause than supporting Habitat’s mission of providing affordable, safe, secure homes.” says Brad Boyd, “Our members know how fortunate they are to have a home, and we, like Habitat, believe everyone deserves a decent place to live. We also believe everyone can do something to help make that possible for others. Raising money for Habitat Cape Cod is Rotary’s way of helping that happen. We want to thank Cape Cod 5 for joining the campaign with their generous lead gift.”
Anyone can participate. If you would like to donate to this campaign, please contact Brad Boyd at 508-776-8918. Sponsorships are available. With your help, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build a better life for themselves and their families here on Cape Cod.
