As the cold weather arrives, it is a reminder that the 9th Annual NOAH Telethon is right around the corner! We hope you’ll join us to volunteer on Wednesday, December 12.
As a PAL (phone attendant liason) in the Telethon’s on-air phone bank, you can share in a wonderful holiday tradition while you help others move “From Homelessness to Hope to Housing.” It’s easy!
1. Let your friends and neighbors know why you think it’s important to support NOAH.
2. Ask them to tune in to local cable channels 13 and 99 for this festive evening!
3. On Telethon night, bring along a list of these people to call for a donation.
Together, we can make 12-12-12 a night to remember! Help make the season brighter for those in need in our community. If you have questions or need more information, contact Mary Everett-Patriquin at volunteer@HAConCapeCod.org or 508-771-5400, ext. 279.

Our staff had the good fortune of attending the kick-off service and the first leg of the 20th Annual Bob Murray Housing with Love Walk this morning in Provincetown. So many things discussed this morning inspired gratitude and a sense of commitment to what the Walk is all about. It was about the difference between shelter and a home, it was about being grateful that we do work that helps people in need, and it was about the beauty of the place we live on one hand and the challenges of living here. The most inspiring part of all was Bob Murray’s commitment. After 19 years of walking from Provincetown to Falmouth to raise awareness and funds for housing needs across Cape Cod, Bob made the ‘Walk’ today in a wheelchair. He truly does walk the walk….
It's not too late to get involved. The walk runs from July 9-15!
The Village at Cautaumet and Carriage House are looking for a volunteer to help guide a client-run Craig’s List and eBay business program to benefit the family shelters and those living there. Clients have been meeting to plan the effort and to line up those with interest to take courses at the Upper Cape Tech and Cape Cod Community College that complement the work they will be doing on the Internet sales effort.
The ideal volunteer is someone who will enjoy working with homeless clients who are trying to improve their lives, and has some Internet and other retail sales experience. The days and hours are flexible. The volunteer’s time would be focused at the Carriage House in North Falmouth, where the office for this new venture will be. A resident of Carriage House has been selected to head up the sales effort.
Please send inquiries to email@example.com.
HAC is also looking for Big Fix Dennis volunteers on September 29th click here to be contacted.
