For the 52 years of the existence of the Women's Club of New Seabury, PHILANTHROPY has been a guiding force.
Traditionally we have one major fundraiser event each year in the fall. In 2021 it will be held on September 15 and is called the "We Care" Giving Fair. Since 2008, WCNS has donated over $225,000 to our beneficiaries. Most are charities that help feed the community in need.
Also, an annual scholarship is awarded each year to the Mashpee Scholarship Foundation Trust. Each year the Trust awards a female graduate from the Mashpee School system who has been accepted to a college or vocational program to pursue advanced studies following graduation.
Please make donations to the WCNS Charitable Trust.
The Women's Club of New Seabury Charitable Trust is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
Recipients for 2022-2023, in addition to the Mashpee Scholarship Foundation Trust, were:
Boys and Girls Club of Cape Cod
St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry
Falmouth Service Center
A Baby Center
Heroes in Transition
FALMOUTH SERVICE CENTER
The mission of the Falmouth Service Center is to ease stress, reduce hunger and improve the quality of life of our neighbors in need. It works to increase self sufficiency by helping to build networks among clients, neighbors and agencies.
The goal of the food pantry is to supplement the food needs and provide five days of food for families in need. Upwards of 75 families are served each week all year round.
It offers on-site food programs for its members, many from families living below the poverty line. The goal of these programs is to teach good nutrition and healthy eating habits as well as manners. The club serves approximately 840 youngsters.
This organization supplements critical basic needs that ensure the good health and safety of babies (including formula) in need who live on Cape Cod and the Islands.
HEROES IN TRANSITION
Co-founded by Cyndy Jones in 2009 in memory of her son Captain Eric Jones. The mission is to provide assistance to veterans and military families which is not available from local, state and federal agencies. This includes provision of programs such as Women's Reboot Day creating routines for sustainable self-care such as nutrition, nourishment and self-esteem. Heroes in Transition provides food for families at Christmas, home modifications, service dogs, a Veteran's Equine Warrior Program, trips for kayaking and fishing; all to support veterans and families transitioning after supporting our country.
MASHPEE SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION TRUST
It was established in 1998 with the purpose of scholarship assistance to Mashpee residents who have graduated from Mashpee Public Schools, Cape Cod Technical High School or a Massachusetts Charter School, and who plan on pursuing advanced studies following graduation.
