As the cold weather arrives, it is a reminder that the 9th Annual NOAH Telethon is right around the corner! We hope you’ll join us to volunteer on Wednesday, December 12.
As a PAL (phone attendant liason) in the Telethon’s on-air phone bank, you can share in a wonderful holiday tradition while you help others move “From Homelessness to Hope to Housing.” It’s easy!
1. Let your friends and neighbors know why you think it’s important to support NOAH.
2. Ask them to tune in to local cable channels 13 and 99 for this festive evening!
3. On Telethon night, bring along a list of these people to call for a donation.
Together, we can make 12-12-12 a night to remember! Help make the season brighter for those in need in our community. If you have questions or need more information, contact Mary Everett-Patriquin at volunteer@HAConCapeCod.org or 508-771-5400, ext. 279.
Mindy Todd of NPR station WCAI will return as the telethon host. Joining her as guest hosts will be HAC CEO Rick Presbrey, Philip Mangano (former head of the U.S. Interagency Council on the Homeless), Matt Pitta of WXTK, Paul Pronovost of the Cape Cod Times and HAC’s director of resource development Lisa Guyon. DJ Suzanne Tonaire of WGTX is lining up local musicians to provide entertainment during the telethon.
NOAH serves over 450 homeless men and women, through the winter and all year long, right here on Cape Cod. $45 provides one day of client services, including access to housing and employment services, two meals, a bed, showers, emergency clothing and special referrals. $540 provides a day of client services, once a month for a year.
The Telethon will take place at Cape Cod Community Media Center, 17 Shad Hole Road, Dennisport and will be shown live 4-9 p.m. on cable access channels 13 and 99 from Bourne to Provincetown.
