Release Date: April 9, 2020
Hyannis, MA – Cape Cod 5 announced today that it will match up to $100,000 in community support for seven local healthcare organizations: Cape Cod Healthcare; Community Health Center of Cape Cod; Outer Cape Health Services; Nantucket Cottage Hospital; Martha’s Vineyard Hospital; Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital – Plymouth; and Southcoast Tobey Hospital. This match is part of a larger commitment of $500,000 in philanthropic support to assist those affected by COVID-19 on Cape Cod, the Islands and in Southeastern Massachusetts announced last week. In addition to the community challenge, there will be a $25,000 match for employees on top of the Bank’s annual employee donation match program, which was instituted two years ago.
“Doctors, nurses, and all healthcare workers are putting themselves on the front lines of this pandemic in order to protect our communities,” said Dorothy Savarese, Chair and CEO of Cape Cod 5. “There is urgent need for financial support of their efforts, and we are challenging all those in the community who are able to give, to consider doing so. Together, we can provide much needed assistance as hospitals and healthcare centers prepare for a surge in COVID-19 patients.
“We at Cape Cod 5 recognize the dire situation facing our communities and, in addition to partnering with each of our customers to help them through this challenging time, are doing everything we can to help those providing critical healthcare services, relief for those affected financially, and basic human need for our neighbors,” continued Savarese. “Cape Cod 5 will always be here for our customers, community members and employees. We are in this together.”
