Cape Cod Child Development Partnering With Local Restaurant for Thanksgiving

HYANNIS – Cape Cod Child Development Program (CCCDP) has announced a Thanksgiving partnership with Cooke’s Seafood Hyannis.

The eatery, located at 1120 Iyannough Road, is accepting donations of nonperishable food items until the day before Thanksgiving. The donated food will be distributed through Cape Cod Child Development’s Family Advocacy team to help the families of children enrolled in the organization’s programs.

In addition, Cooke’s Seafood Hyannis will also donate 20% of their proceeds that day, Wednesday, November 21, to CCCDP to help support programs that benefit needy children and families across Cape Cod, the Islands and in Wareham, MA.

“We want to sincerely thank our friends at Cooke’s Seafood Hyannis for choosing us as the beneficiary of nonperishable foods for our families as well for sharing a generous percentage of their profits on the day before Thanksgiving,” says Nancy Sorbo, Interim

Agency Director at Cape Cod Child Development. “This time of year can be financially challenging for the families we serve as many jobs are affected by the seasonal work changes here on the Cape. The result can be a significant reduction of family income which creates additional stressors for families. We greatly appreciate this assistance as we work to help families make ends meet by providing additional food items to make nourishing meals for their children.”

Cooke’s Seafood Hyannis Front of the House Manager Michelle Lewis is excited about the partnership. “Cooke’s Seafood Hyannis has had a long history of giving back to the community. Starting from the beginning with Jim and Frances Haidas and now continuing with their sons Van and Michael.” say Lewis. “I am so honored to be a part of this tradition and proud that we can give back to the Hyannis community who supported us all these years.”

Customers can stop by anytime until November 21 to drop off nonperishable goods to help the children and families CCCDP serves. They are also urged to consider dining at Cooke’s Seafood Hyannis on that day to further support CCCDP’s work.
