Here on Cape Cod we have so many wonderful charity organizations who are working to serve the community.  At CapeSpace, we are making it easy for members and guests alike to help out these organizations in super easy ways.

Do you have items in your home that are hardly every used, maybe never used, but you don’t want to throw them away and don’t have time to find a charity to donate them to and make the trip?  Well we will do that for you!   Just toss them in here.  We’ll take care of transporting them to the donees.

The Family Pantry of Cape Cod is a terrific non-profit food bank that provides food and basic necessities to Cape Codders in need. In 2017, they provided food to over 9,300 clients and distributed 72,512 bags of groceries and 29 tons of donated clothing. They are an important safety net for our community.  They pride themselves in offering healthy fresh foods to their clients as well as offering opportunities for folks to sign up for fuel assistance, SNAP (food stamps) benefits and more.

Below is a list of items they are collecting this holiday season.

Cape Space is proud to partner with the Cape and Islands United Way to bring you these opportunities to Live United!
