Belonging To Each Other
Belonging to Each Other is a Falmouth Community Organization that provides temporary housing and
loving support to our homeless neighbors during the winter months.
While our season for assisting Falmouth's homeless runs from December 1 through March 31, the Development Team continued to work throughout the other eight months of the year! And it was a very active off-season!FALL 50 ROAD RACE
We were fortunate to be awarded two grants this summer: One from Beth Israel Senior Citizens Housing, Inc. (BISCHI) for the purchase of computer equipment for our two rental houses, and one from the Falmouth Rotary Club for program expenses. Having computers and printers available for our clients to complete benefit applications, and search and apply for jobs is so important. And the additional funds to cover the cost of housing means the world to us. We are so grateful to both organizations for their support.
We had the opportunity to volunteer, have fun, and earn money for BTEO! For the August Falmouth Road Race we handed out runner numbers over 3 days, covering 27 shifts. On Saturday September 30th 20 people volunteered at the finish line at Craigville Beach at the first annual Fall 50 Cape Cod 50 mile Relay Race. Thanks to all our amazing volunteers! These two events brought in $1900 from the corporate sponsor of the races, NuBalance. We so appreciate this corporation giving back to our community!
FALL FUNDRAISING LETTER
For the first time BTEO is conducting a matching funds campaign! Our letter of appeal went out at the end of September letting our generous friends and donors know that we have $3000 in matching funds from three donors. Since that time two additional donors have come forward with another $1000! With a total of $4000 in matching funds, over six weeks from October 1 through November 11, we have the opportunity to bring in $8000! This information would be great to pass along on Facebook along with BTEO's mailing address. Friends and family are often happy to pitch in.
ANNUAL FUNDRAISING EVENT: Stay tuned! We will be announcing our 2018 fundraising event soon.
ALTERNATIVE GIFT MARKET
We are very pleased that Belonging to Each Other has been invited again to participate in the Upper Cape Alternative Gift Market (AGM). This annual community event, sponsored by a coalition of seven Falmouth congregations, promotes alternative giving and raises funds for local and international nonprofit organizations. We need volunteers to help at our table on November 11th and 12th, from 11:00 - 3:00. Please contact Paula Beckerle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
