About CARE for the Cape & Islands Day

It is our goal to inspire residents and the business community to become stewards of the home we love, Cape Cod and the Islands. At the event all attendees will learn about the project from members of the Friends’ board and be able to take a tour of the home and lighthouse. The event is a great way to meet other volunteers from the business community and recipients of CARE grants. We will be presenting the 2017 grants at the conclusion of the service tasks and enjoy lunch provided by Quicks Hole Tavern, and Kayak Cookies, our lunch sponsors. Thanks also to Compost With Me. Event to run 8:30AM-1:00PM.

Parking: All Parking will be off site with shuttle details prior to the event. Thank you to Green Shuttle, our transportation sponsor.

Thank you to our lead sponsor, Beacon Financial Planning!




Thank you to our Silver Sponsor, Northeast Unlimited Tours!

CARE for the Cape & Islands Day 2016

Each year we host a 1/2 day of volunteer service at a local nonprofit. Representatives from local businesses and residents were invited this year to the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History on Thursday, May 5 from 8:30 AM – 1PM. There were a variety of activities including planting the new Pollinator Path, one of CARE’s 2016 support projects, and planting for the museum’s upcoming plant sale. All attendees were invited to enjoy a Cinco de Mayo themed lunch during presentation of 2016 grants and take home a CARE Day t-shirt and organic seeds.

In order to support this and ongoing projects we ask that participants were asked to donate $25per person or $50 for a business of up to 3 attendees. If you were unable to attend you may still donate to CARE by sending a check payable to CARE for the Cape and Islands, P.O. Box 638, Yarmouth Port, MA 02675. Thank you for your support!
