This year will be the second year of our LoveLocal Fest: Holiday Edition; it will also be the second year that we raise money at the event for The Cape Cod Times Needy Fund. Last year we asked attendees for a suggested donation of $5 at the door, and raised $4000 for the organization. This year we will do the same.
There are so many deserving local charities, but we have chosen The Needy Fund to be our beneficiary, as they do a huge fundraising push during the holidays, as their first mission when they were founded in 1936 was to provide holiday meals to the neediest families on Cape Cod.
Their mission evolved to assist our fellow Cape Codders with urgent financial needs. We love that they will lift up individuals and families when they are going through one of the worst times in their lives, like a family death, illness or a job loss, and help them pay for their medicine, rent or even their heat, and bring them back to a place where they can start to get back on their feet. We think this is an invaluable gift to our community.
