The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod Charitable Foundation Trust (The Coop Foundation) has announced the awarding of $29,000 in grants to five organizations that provide programing to address fundamental needs and challenges of the local community.
“The last 18 months has exacerbated the challenges faced by many year-round Cape Codders. It is a struggle for so many in our communities to afford to live here on the Cape,” said Lisa Oliver, president, chair and CEO of The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod. “Further complicating the situation, it’s become increasingly challenging for nonprofit organizations to raise funds in the midst of a pandemic. We’re honored to award these grants from The Coop Foundation to help these organizations continue providing critical services for our neighbors who need a helping hand.”
The following grants were awarded:
- $10,000 to Champ Homes of Hyannis to support its Transitional Housing Assistance Program and Youth and Young Adult Program.
- $5,000 to Crystal Garden Children’s Learning Center of Hyannis to build a new safe and inclusive playground so they can further their mission to provide year-round, early education to medium and low-income families.
- $10,000 to Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod to help fund six affordable homes in the town of Harwich.
- $1,000 to Neighborhood Falmouth, which provides assistance to Falmouth seniors so they can stay safely and comfortably in their home for as long as possible.
- $3,000 to Pleasant Bay Community Boating of Harwich for a new adaptive kayak for its Adaptive Boating Program.
