YMCA CAPE COD
The Cape Cod YMCA believes that lasting personal and social change can only come about by working together to invest in the children, health and neighbors of the Cape’s communities. At the Y, strengthening community is the focus. Every day, working side by side with neighbors in our community to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive. Financial assistance scholarships keep the Y available for kids and families who need the Y most. Funds from the Hyannis Car Wash Giveaway are earmarked to increase these scholarship awards.
THE BOYS & GIRLS CLUB OF CAPE COD
For over 15 years, the Boys & Girls Club of Cape Cod has provided professionally staffed programs open to all Cape Cod children, ages 6-18. These programs include homework help, the arts, character and leadership development, and sports and fitness. This includes both their after-school program and summer camp. A thousand children and teens are served year round by the Boys & Girls Club of Cape Cod. Money raised from the Hyannis Car Wash Giveaway is slated to assist with the Health and Fitness Programs with its three integrated components: mind, body and soul.
