Provincetown, MA — Cindy Horgan, Executive Director of the Cape Cod Children’s Place, recently announced that the organization will receive a $25,000 donation from Seamen’s Bank and said, "We are incredibly grateful for this generous gift from Seamen's Bank in support of the expansion project at Cape Cod Children's Place. Seamen's Bank’s longstanding commitment to local families has been repeatedly demonstrated and this gift is another strong statement regarding their investment in the children and families of the Lower and Outer Cape.”
For 21 years, the Cape Cod Children’s Place (CCCP) has provided professional care in their 10 Baltic Road, Eastham facility. The expanded space underway will provide services to keep children and families safe and nurturing. Renovations will be completed within the 3,841 sq/ft existing building to improve classrooms, playgrounds, and existing school facilities. Additionally, a 1,867 sq/ft two-level expansion is being built to create space for the parenting education and family support services that CCCP provides free to local families.
Lori Meads, Executive Vice President /Chief Operating Officer of Seamen’s Bank, serves on the CCCP’s Capital Campaign Committee and stated, “As a Cape Cod native, parent, employee and through my interactions with businesses and non-profits throughout the Cape, I am thoroughly aware of the need for reliable, healthy child care. It is with great pleasure that Seamen’s Bank is supporting the expansion of the Children’s Place, a most worthy organization that is integral to the lives of hundreds of Cape Cod families.”
Seamen’s Bank was also the driving force behind the CCCP’s Sea Babies program. Located at the Wellfleet Council on Aging, Sea Babies is meeting the need for care for children as young as one month.
Seamen's, Cape Cod's first community bank, was founded in 1851. With five offices from Provincetown through Eastham, Seamen’s serves residents and business owners from Brewster to Provincetown.
