Provincetown, MA — The Cape community is known for opening its heart, especially during times of crisis and Seamen’s Bank, Cape Cod’s first community bank, is known for its community support at all times. In light of the government shutdown, the Bank is collecting funds to join its donations to the Lower Cape Outreach Council (LCOC), Soup Kitchen in Provincetown (SKIP), and Helping Our Women (HOW). They are also collecting canned goods and toiletries for LCOC and HOW at their five branches.
The mission of LCOC is to provide emergency assistance of food, clothing and financial support to the Lower Cape Cod and to follow up with services and support in the areas of employment and education. SKIP provides hot, nourishing lunches to Outer Cape Cod residents. SKIP’s services include “to-go” meals for weekends, homeless-prevention assistance, nutrition counseling and health monitoring. HOW has opened its Food and Personal Care Product Pantry to all federal workers whose pay has been affected by the government shutdown.
According to Lori Meads, President and CEO of Seamen’s Bank, “It is our privilege and mission to support our community, and an honor to help secure the health of our community during this shutdown which is affecting so many.”
