"Comforts of Home" with Senior Corps RSVP and Housing Assistance Corporation

Partners collect clothing and home goods for the homeless...

Cape Cod, MA - Martin Luther King Day is a time when communities come together to help one another.  Millions across our country will join each other on January 20, 2020 to celebrate this holiday as “a day on, not a day off.”  Every year Senior Corps RSVP provides a service to the community on MLK Day, and this year is no different.

Beginning Monday, December 23, 2019, Senior Corps RSVP will partner with Housing Assistance Corporation (HAC) to run a clothing and home goods drive for the homeless, called Comforts of Home.  Boxes to collect donated goods will be set up at Barnstable Adult Community Center (825 Falmouth Road, Hyannis), Provincetown Senior Center (2 Mayflower St, Provincetown) and Elder Services of Cape Cod & the Islands (68 Route 134, S. Dennis).  All donations will be collected by Friday, January 17 and delivered to HAC on January 20.

We are only able to accept new, unopened items for Family Care Packages for shelter clients or for Welcome Home Baskets for families moving from shelter into a permanent home.  For a complete list of donations please visit the Housing Assistance Corporation’s website: https://haconcapecod.org/support-us/donate/donating-items/

Senior Corps RSVP is sponsored by Elder Services of Cape Cod & the Islands, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization, and funded through a grant from the Corporation for National & Community Service. Housing Assistance Corporation is a 501(c)(3) organization.
