We want to kick off December and the month of giving back by highlighting just how much we have accomplished in such a short time. We want to thank our dedicated leadership team, our amazing volunteers including the Rotary Club of Falmouth Cape Cod (accounts for approx 1/3 of our volunteer hours), and our community for rising to the challenge of helping our local public schools. This is such an accomplishment and everyone who has contributed no matter how small has helped us achieve this- so THANK YOU!!!
We are currently working really hard at Phase 2 by providing WeatherPort Shelter Systems at each school (can hold up in 120 mph winds and a 90 inch snow load) and supporting curriculum. In order to do this especially with the shelters we still need to fundraise especially if we want to get them here as close to after the holiday break as possible. We hope that this holiday season you might consider writing a check for as little as $10 to help support the shelter portion of the project!
If you would like to contribute please mail a check (or you can drop off to Amy-just comment and we can arrange it) to Falmouth Volunteers in Public Schools - VIPS and write on the memo line: Falmouth Outdoor Learning-Shelters. You can also choose to donate online via the VIPS website but a processing fee applies and you must be sure to select our project on the drop down menu.
Thank you so much to the volunteer crew of 10, that came out this morning at Lawrence School to sand and seal the 6 new 8 foot picnic tables in an effort to support our students and teachers in outdoor learning! Special thank you to John Neill Painting for providing the tools to get the job done! Amazing effort!
