Outreach

 

The Outreach Program is a service-oriented group to The Women's Club that supports our local community organizations through a wide array of activities. Throughout the year volunteer opportunities include: Wreath laying at the National Cemetery; serving food/desserts at the Congregate Housing; Council on Aging social events and creating/distributing May Baskets for local support groups and assisted living residents. Three annual events are organized by this group which benefit Cape Cod Cares 4 the Troops; Christmas Adopt-a-family for the Homeless Prevention council

and The Chatham Food Pantry.
