After hearing story after story of how Coast Guard families are being negatively affected by the federal shutdown, Tabor Academy librarian Ann Richard took her concern and put it into action, contacting the Cape Cod Military Support Foundation to ask how the Tabor community might help. When she learned that the greatest need is for toiletries, baby food, wipes, diapers, along with other non-perishables, Richard and the library staff placed collection boxes in the Stroud Academic Center lobby and at the Hayden Library’s rear entrance. Whatever is collected will be delivered to Don Cox at the Cape Cod Military Support Foundation and distributed to local families beginning Friday, January 25, and on an ongoing basis until the shutdown is over.
If you are interested in helping out, please deliver your donations to Tabor Academy at either the Stroud Academic Center located on 232 Front Street or the Hayden Library at 71 Spring Street. Questions may be directed to Ann Richard at 508-291-8564 or Lauren Boucher at 508-291-8375 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
