Mid-Cape Home Centers once again showed its support for Housing Assistance in an impressive way during the 19th annual Telethon for Hope.
Mid-Cape’s team – Andrew Loucks, Austin O’Brien, Michelle L. Gemborys, Fallon Rice, Crystal Pieschel, Ronda Ciocca, Leah Fennell and Gordon Correia – was the top fundraising team. In addition, Correia, who works at Mid-Cape as a roofing, siding and skylights specialist, was the top individual fundraiser.
Correia said he was motivated by seeing the effects of the Cape’s housing crisis first-hand. “There is no housing,” he said. “I have guys who are coming to work from way off Cape because they can’t afford to live on the Cape.”
Copeland Chevrolet Hyannis and Copeland Subaru Hyannis were also among this year’s generous supporters.
“As a locally owned company, we want to grow from the Cape and employ our fellow Cape Codders,” said owner Todd Copeland. “We hate to hear about young talent leaving the Cape because they can’t find a place they can afford. Our customers love to see the same faces assisting them and with the high cost of living on the Cape, it’s becoming more difficult to retain those employees.”
