bo102916cBOURNE – Donations of toys, sports equipment, stuffed animals and gift cards are still being accepted at the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office for local military families.

The donations will replace gifts gathered by the Cape Cod Military Support Foundation which were lost in a fire at Joint Base Cape Cod last month.

Gift donations for the party are also being accepted at Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod locations.

The foundation is looking for new toys for children ages 3 to 12 and gift cards for teens, along with holiday decorations.

Along with the Christmas party, the foundation’s Children’s Fund provides family events including an Easter Egg Hunt, Operation Backpack, which provides military children with school supplies, and the Operation Pumpkin Halloween party.

The foundation also provides food cards, gas cards, financial support, medical support, bereavement and holiday support through the Chaplain’s Fund.

Other functions of the foundation include the Scholarship and Education Fund, Military Awards Dinner and maintaining the Memorial Park on the base.
