This holiday season Project Holiday helped 31 Yarmouth families (53 children and 46 adults) who would otherwise have had little to celebrate. Participants in Project Holiday included:
- Yarmouth Cares About Neighbors (YCAN)
- First Parish Congregational Church
- Yarmouth Community Food Pantry
- Lions Club
- Yarmouth Fire and Rescue’s Hats and Mittens collection
- Girl Scouts
- 14 individual residents and businesses
- All of the volunteers who helped with distribution
All of the above groups worked together to ensure that each family had food on the table, something to keep them warm, and something to help the children believe in Santa Claus.
YCAN was formed to bring the community together to help residents who need assistance. Project Holiday is a shining example of what can happen when we all band together for a common cause. Our community can and does make a difference!
