Do you plan on purchasing gift cards for your loved ones this holiday season? Then there’s a way for you to do so that will prevent families on Cape Cod from becoming homeless without costing you anything extra. 

The offer is being run by the Dennis-Yarmouth Ecumenical Council for the Homeless (DYECH) which raises funds directly for our Project Prevention program.

DYECh has a limited amount of gift cards available for purchase to over 100 stores, restaurants and movie theaters (from Ace Hardware to Zappos). Click here for the full list of participating businesses.

When you purchase gift cards through this program, merchants give a percentage of the sale to homelessness prevention. For example, if you buy a $25 gift card for the Gap, your gift card is worth the full $25, but the Gap donates 14 percent ($3.50) to Project Prevention. All of the money raised through this program is given directly to families in need, allowing them to remain in their homes and off the streets and out of shelter. 

You can either purchase gift cards using the form above or go directly to Follow the instructions to register and note you must use the following enrollment code (copy and paste it) to support DYECH and HAC: 561B698219989. 

Certificates can be picked up at Yarmouth Appliance Clinic at 61 White’s Path in Yarmouth one week after you place your order. Because this is a popular program, it is recommended you place your orders early.
