Christmas Wishes – Cape Codders Need Your Help!

Cape Cod Broadcasting Media has partnered with The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod and Child and Family Services to bring you Christmas Wishes.

With Christmas Wishes, we ask that you please consider sponsoring a Cape Cod Family in need so that they can enjoy the holiday season. There are many Cape Cod families that are struggling to make ends meet and won’t be able to provide a Christmas for their families this season. You can help them out!

To the right on this page is a tree that is bare. We will decorate the tree as families are sponsored. The goal is to fully decorate the tree and to have all 200 families sponsored.

Can you help out a family in need this holiday season?

How To Sponsor A Family

Below is a complete list of all the families that are in need of help this year. We’ve sorted them by estimated cost to sponsor the family to make their holiday special.

  1. Click on a family number to read about the needs of that family.
  2. If interested in sponsoring the family, fill out the form on the page.
  3. That is it! You’ve now sponsored a family!

After you’ve sponsored a family, you’ll receive an email with the details of the family, the drop off locations and the deadline to drop off gifts. If you would like to donate generic items, please scroll down to the bottom of the page for the generic item list.

If you have any questions, you can always email
