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.
Please click here for more information, including a link to the Facebook page. And thank you for helping our community!
Please click here to see the flyer for this program. It will take place on Wednesday, March 20, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. in the Yarmouth Performing Arts Center at Yarmouth High School.
Coffee will be available starting at 9:30, and the program will begin at 10:00. Lunch will follow in the Yarmouth High School cafeteria at 11:30.
CALLING ALL DOG LOVERS…
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.
