The new year brings more challenges and disruptions. CCVI has been delivering the same assistance as prior years through this virus. The past two months have been very busy. Most of the donations CCVI has made were to elderly Veterans needing assistance with rent, insurance, vehicle repairs, utility bill assistance, food, etc. An email from the Mass. Veterans Service Officer sums up our work.
"Just wanted you to know that our elderly widow is warm and safe thanks to CCVI. Check was made out to ------- Inn Buzzards until January 31st. You guys are true life changers! Love you all!"
Gift cards are now at The VA Readjustment Center on West Main St. and the Hyannis MA Veterans Service Office for needy Veterans in dire need.
So much thanks to our donors. Terry and Jen O'Donnell presented CCVI with a $30,000 check. Jimmy Tsoukalas donated $1,000, Shaw's Supermarket, Cape Cod 5 Bank, Hot Stove Saloon $2,115, Chip Chupinski, Fidelity, plus many others to include the patron's at the Sand Dollar Family Restaurant. .
CCVI has sent out Scholarship checks to 4 High Schools. D-Y H.S. has $4,700 in our Scholarship Fund from our Kenny McGilvray Halloween Golf Tournament for graduation seniors. Great job Chairman of Golf Ed Tierney. Terry Clen Chair of the Wounded Warfighters Group has set this year's Falmouth Fishing Derby, more to follow.
