Government Shutdown – Assistance for Those Affected on the Upper Cape

By on January 10, 2019 in Human Service Related Articles

Have you or your family been affected by the government shutdown? The Falmouth Service Center will, for the duration of this crisis, be providing food for any individual or household that may be civilian and working for federal entities on the Upper Cape.

Additionally, at this time, if a family or individual impacted by the federal furlough is having difficulty with a financial matter and requests financial assistance, Falmouth Service Center is waiving the Financial Assistance Class and the Falmouth only requirement. This would be for residents of Bourne, Sandwich, Mashpee and Joint Base Cape Cod. This is a direct result of the federal shutdown and this change in policy will only be for the period of the crisis. Click here for more information or call the Falmouth Service Center at 508-548-2794.

As always, Falmouth Service Center is available for food for all active duty military and veterans regardless of where they reside.

Do you wish to help? You can donate your favorite food item as demand for food has increased or you can make a financial contribution that will be used to help with the critical needs as they become apparent. Thank you!
