The Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen's Alliance has partnered with The Family Pantry of Cape Cod since August 2013 on the "Fish for Families" program.
So far, the program has provided more than 21,000 pounds of seafood to families in need on Cape Cod. Sea scallops, sea clams, skate, dogfish, bluefish and mackerel have been distributed to five food pantries on the Cape. In 2015, we also organized a pilot distribution of 2,000 pounds of skate fillets to the Greater Boston Food Bank, which services 500 Eastern Massachusetts food pantries.
As we face 2016, we need your financial support to fund the purchase of local fish and distribution efforts. Join us on #GivingTuesday to make a huge impact on our local community.
#GivingTuesday is a worldwide movement to bring awareness to the season of charity through peer-to-peer fundraising on social media. This year, it falls on Tuesday, December 1. After a weekend focusing on steals and deals from Black Friday, Shop Local Saturday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday creates an opportunity for giving back.
Show your philanthropic spirit and donate to the Fishermen's Alliance on #GivingTuesday, December 1. Your donation will provide more than 38,000 seafood dishes to families in need across Cape Cod.
Double your impact on December 1
Thanks to our generous matching donors, Jeffrey & Nancy Bilezikian and The Robert B. Our Company, every gift donated on #GivingTuesday will be matched dollar for follar up to $10,000.
To reach our $20,000 goal, that means we only need 100 donors to pledge $100 - don't miss this opportunity!
As a thank you, everyone who donates on #GivingTuesday will be entered into a drawing to win a two-night stay for two at the Chatham Wayside Inn. Winner will be announced on Wednesday, December 2.
