For the ninth consecutive year, The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod will support local food pantries for Giving Tuesday 2022. The Coop will donate $10,000 to 10 local pantries serving communities from Falmouth to Provincetown.
“With inflationary pressures and the worsening housing crisis, the number of people across Cape Cod experiencing food insecurity has never been higher,” said Lisa Oliver, Chair, President and CEO of The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod. “The Coop applauds the dedication and hard work of these food pantries and their volunteers to ensure Cape Cod families have food on the table. Please join us and generously support our local food pantries during the holiday season and throughout the year.”
The pantries receiving $1,000 donations include Cape Cod Military Support Empowerment Center; Falmouth Service Center; Family Table Collaborative; Hands of Hope Community Outreach Center and Food Pantry (operated by Cape Cod Council of Churches); Helping Our Women; Lower Cape Outreach Council; Sandwich Food Pantry; SKIP (Soup Kitchen in Provincetown) Food Pantry; The Family Pantry of Cape Cod; and Yarmouth Food Pantry.
Giving Tuesday was established in 2012 as a dedicated day during the holiday season to encourage people to do good. Over the past decade, Giving Tuesday has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity.
