Kudos to Cape Codders! In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Cape Cod has joined the rest of the country in raising and donating money and supplies for our fellow Americans in need. Closer to home, we opened our arms and our hearts to folks at Otis.
From Provincetown to the bridge, Cape Codders quickly organized fund raising events with proceeds benefiting the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army and other reputable charities. To date, some of those events have included:
Cape Codders have shown that every little bit counts as we continue to find ways to help our neighbors in need. If you are interested in joining in, check our calendar for future fund raising events. If you or your organization is planning an event, let us know and we'll help you spread the word.
And last, but not least, we haven't forgotten the beloved pets who were also victimized by Katrina. Yarmouth Port based IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare) has played an integral part in rescuing dogs and cats (and even a 300 lb pot-bellied pig called Rooty) who were stranded in the flood waters.
Sometimes it seems it is easier to point out all the things that are wrong with Cape Cod. It's nice to be able to talk about something that is right.
Positive or negative, we welcome your comments and opinions about Cape Cod issues. Let us know what's going on--what's bugging you or putting a smile on your face.
