The checks came in by the dozens. Some were for small amounts, others more generous than we could have imagined ($25,000, for example). Yet every last one was critical to the success of this year's Gifts of Hope campaign.
We shouldn't be at all surprised by the kindness of Lower Cape residents - year after year we have been witness to how people dig deep to help neighbors, friends and family. We can't help but be overwhelmed, though, that such generosity has resulted in this year's campaign reaching a whopping $150,000! That's $30,000 more than last year's record-breaking effort."
