The school community and YCAN are streamlining the way we meet the needs of individuals in our schools by establishing a Facebook group, Yarmouth Emergency Team (YET).
The closed Facebook group will address the needs of specific anonymous Yarmouth students (for example, a gently-used pair of boots or a calculator) as requested by the school liaison, and will streamline how we meet emergency needs while providing an opportunity for the larger community to become involved in helping neighbors in need.
YCAN is in search of a driver willing to take a Yarmouth woman to visit the Service Dog Project in Ipswich, MA and bring her home. The rider has significant mobility issues due to Parkinsons, and if she qualifies for a service dog (the reason for the trip), it could change her life.
If you love dogs – especially Great Danes – your time at the Project will be full of joy and enrichment. And you’d be doing something remarkable for a neighbor.
The Service Dog Project Open House takes place every Sunday from 12 – 4:00, so there is flexibility in arranging this ride. This is a large ask, and we understand that. If you find yourself open to this idea, please contact Leslie Hyde at the YCAN phone 207.838.2261 for further details.
Brickyard Hollow Brewing Co. will donate a portion of their December 19th and 26th Community Night proceeds to the YCAN Fuel Assistance program. Click on the link above for more information about their hours, location, and menu – and consider visiting them on Wednesday 12/19 or 12/6!
Thank you for supporting those who need help heating their homes.
The Yarmouth High School Interact Club is hosting “Kids Night Out” on the first Friday of each month through May – see the above, or this PDF, for further information.
The Lunch Crunch program (summer breakfasts and lunches for Yarmouth children who might not otherwise get enough food during the week) will be one of the beneficiaries of funds raised via Kids Night Out.
