Hyannis, MA – Cape Cod 5 recently announced grants totaling $27,500 from its Foundation to support Cape Cod Healthcare and Outer Cape Health Services in their COVID-19 testing strategies. The funds will help underwrite the cost of providing tests to local residents across the Cape who are otherwise unable to afford them. This is the latest philanthropic support being provided by Cape Cod 5 to aid in pandemic response, relief and assistance efforts.
“Cape Cod 5 recognizes the extraordinary impact that the pandemic has had on our region and we believe that availability of testing is critically important,” said Dorothy A. Savarese, Chair and CEO of Cape Cod 5. “We are proud to support our local healthcare providers who are working hard to make testing equally accessible to all members of our community as we all collectively work to mitigate the spread and continued impact of the virus.”
“The COVID-19 pandemic has reminded us of the strength of our community and the important role we all play in caring for each other and our neighbors. This generous donation helps support our ongoing efforts to protect our community through expanded access to COVID-19 testing,” said Michael Lauf, President and CEO of Cape Cod Healthcare.
"We are enormously grateful for Cape Cod 5's most recent support in our efforts to expand COVID-19 testing options on the Lower and Outer Cape," said Pat Nadle, CEO of Outer Cape Health Services. "We applaud the Bank in sharing our deep commitment to serving all in need of affordable and equitable access to COVID-19 testing amidst this devastating pandemic."
