2020 Big Fix-A-Thon Recap
In the fall of 2020 we were able continue our Big Fix-A-Thon by holding it virtually! Over the course of several weeks in August, September and October, our volunteers helped raise nearly $20,000 to our Workforce Housing Relief Fund.The fund was established in April to to provide one-time emergency financial assistance for households who don’t qualify for public programs and who have lost income and/or jobs due to the pandemic.
Along with fundraising, several of our volunteers organized cleanups in their communities for neighbors in need, including Cape Associates which repaired an outdoor ramp for an elderly couple in Orleans, both of whom are living with cerebral palsy. The ramp serves as the main form of egress and is a vital link for their caregivers to get into and out of the house.
In South Yarmouth, Sunny Fellman gathered a massive yard cleanup in her neighborhood for a single mother and her children, embracing the true spirit of the fundraising day of service.
