Thanks to the Yarmouth Community for being part of “Project Holiday” 2012. This Holiday Season we were able to help 33 Yarmouth families (64 children and 67 adults) who would otherwise have very little to celebrate. The Yarmouth Food Pantry gave out over 40 food baskets with turkeys and all the fixings.
– the First Parish Congregational Church
– St. Bartholomew Church
– the Lions Club
– Yarmouth Fire and Rescue’s Hats and Mittens collection
– the Girl Scouts
– 22 individual residents and businesses
– all of the volunteers who helped with distribution
each of the families we helped had food on the table, something to keep them warm, and something to help keep the Holiday Spirit alive.
“Yarmouth Cares About Neighbors” (YCAN) was formed to bring the community together to help those residents who find themselves in need of assistance. Project Holiday is a shining example of what can happen when we all band together in a common cause. We are making a difference.
Stop in at the Royal Bean for “10% Tuesday” on December 4th, and they will give 10% of the day’s proceeds to the Yarmouth Fuel Assistance Fund.
The more you buy, the warmer we’ll all feel.
Thanks to a generous donation from People’s United Bank, the Yarmouth Chamber of Commerce will be donating the proceeds from the raffle of a new 32GB iPad 4G (with Wi-Fi and cellular – valued at $729) to the Yarmouth Cares About Neighbors (YCAN) Fuel Fund.
Raffle tickets cost only $10 each, and may be purchased at
– the Chamber office
– any Chamber event
– the Chamber’s Boast ‘n Toast Auction
The raffle drawing will take place at the Boast ‘n Toast auction, which starts at 5 pm on Wednesday, December 5th, at the Muddy Rudder restaurant on Route 1.
Even if you are not in the market for an iPad, please spread the word to your friends and acquaintances, as 100% of the iPad raffle proceeds will go to the YCAN Fuel Assistance Fund.
