Tonight: Otto’s Pizza (Yarmouth) proceeds to support YCAN

Otto’s in Yarmouth will be donating 8% of proceeds gathered between 5p – 9p tonight to three local organizations, so tonight is a great night to plan on take out pizza for dinner!!

The funds received by YCAN will be used to help bridge the gap for any shortfall in this summer’s Lunch Crunch program (free summer lunches for kids).

Thank you!

Project Holiday Thanks YOU!

Now that the holiday season of 2014 has come to an end, we would like to thank all the many people in Yarmouth who helped others have a few more things to celebrate last month.

Thanks to the many, many kind donations of food or funds to the food pantry, as well as the numerous volunteer hours that went into sorting food, preparing food baskets, and helping with distribution, the Yarmouth Community Food pantry provided holiday meals for 292 adults as part of Project Holiday.

And, thanks to the many, many donations of gifts and volunteer hours, the Project Holiday team supplied holiday gifts to 109 children from 46 families.

Thank you to all who helped by donating space, food, gifts, time, and/or funds! Yarmouth is a town that cares about its neighbors… Thank YOU!
