Where to Volunteer this Holiday Season
Nov 22, 2017
As we get ready to kick off the holiday season, we like to take some time to think of those who are less fortunate. We've rounded up just a few worthy causes near Captain's Cove where you can donate and volunteer this holiday season.
The Eastern Shore SPCA provides shelter, food, medical care, and adoption services for homeless and abandoned dogs and cats. You can help this season by making a donation, choosing Eastern Shore SPCA as your cause when you shop on AmazonSmile, or come to the shelter to volunteer your time in the kennel and cat rooms.
Since 1981, the Foodbank has been leading the effort to eliminate hunger in our community, distributing over 272 million pounds of food equating to over 226.8 million meals. The 21st Annual Mayflower Marathon Food Drive last weekend was able to raise enough food to distribute non-perishable items, turkeys, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and onions to 172 partner agency food pantries and soup kitchens. See more here.
The Eastern Shore Coalition Against Domestic Violence's mission is to provide support and empowerment to victims of domestic and sexual abuse and to provide programs that increase awareness and prevention in the community. You can help with a monetary donation or volunteering in several different areas, including fundraising support, children's services support hotline support and more.
Living in Captain's Cove has given us a unique view of the beauty of Virginia's Eastern Shore. CBES is a grassroots organization dedicated to promoting sustainable development on the Eastern Shore to promote balanced growth, enhance the quality of life of all our citizens, and preserve our cultural and natural resources.
