Toys available for families in need at the Boys & Girls Club
Thanks to the Mashpee Firefighters & Police Unions
The Mashpee Firefighter and Mashpee Police Unions will be camping out at the Mashpee Rotary for five days, collecting unwrapped toys, gift cards, or cash donations to be given out to families who can use a hand this Christmas.
The toys will be available for Cape Cod low income families at the Boys & Girls Club of Cape Cod beginning on Tuesday, December 10 from 10am-1PM, and every morning through that week, until they are gone.
Please be aware that NO toys will be distributed at the fire station or police station, and they will not be given out while the Boys & Girls Club is open for children afterschool. There will be a limit of 3 toys per child.
“We cannot thank the Mashpee first responders for their dedication or the community at large for their generosity. The firefighters and police officers literally live at the rotary for days on end.” said Ruth Provost, executive director of the Boys & Girls Club. “There are always tears of joy, and a lot of laughter, when we give toys to families who would have otherwise had a pretty bleak Christmas. I cannot even begin to tell you how much it means to them and to their kids. I want to thank everyone, firefighters, police, and donors, who help to make this kind of miracle for children happen every year.”
If you miss the chance to donate at the rotary, you can drop items off at any Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod, the Rockland Trust Bank in Mashpee, Bucatino Restaurant & Wine Bar in North Falmouth, the Club at New Seabury, or the Quarterdeck Restaurant in Falmouth. The Boys & Girls Club is also accepting cash donations and gift cards to use as presents for teens and to support their programs that serve 1,076 Cape Cod children and teens every year, Provost added.
