On Nov. 10, Regional Council 3 held a successful food and diaper drive to benefit Independence House, the only community-based resource on Cape Cod that provides free and confidential services for survivors of domestic and sexual abuse (services are also provided to children of survivors).
The drive resulted in more than $4,000 worth of food and diapers being collected, as well as $450 in Stop and Shop gift cards. The donations were delivered to very grateful staff members at Independence House the week after the drive.
Regional Council 3 has committed to supporting Independence House long term, and it will hold two major food drives over the next year as part of this commitment. Members attending meetings, classes and events at the Region 3 office in Sandwich are also invited to bring donations.
