Mashpee Public Safety Unions, Boys and Girls Club Team Up to Help Needy Families

MASHPEE – Toys are now available for low income and needs families on Cape Cod thanks to another terrific effort by the Mashpee Firefighter and Mashpee Police Unions.

For five days the unions camped out, collecting unwrapped toys to be handed out to families in need and need help purchasing gifts.

The toys have been available for low income families on the Cape at the Boys & Girls Club of Cape Cod. Toys will be available for pickup from 10:00 a.m. through 1:00 p.m. on a daily basis until they’re all gone. There is a limit of three toys per child.

“We cannot thank the Mashpee first responders enough for their dedication or the community at large for their generosity. The firefighters and police officers literally lived at the rotary for days on end,” said Boys & Girls Club Executive Director Ruth Provost.

“There are always tears of joy, and a lot of laughter, when we give toys to families who would have otherwise had a pretty bleak Christmas. I cannot even begin to tell you how much it means to them and their kids. I want to thank everyone, firefighters, police, and donors, who help make this kind of miracle for children happen every year.”

No toys will be distributed at the fire station and will not be given out while the Boys & Girls Club is open to children after school.
