Updated: Jan 24, 2019


Welcome to our new monthly newsletter!

2019 is already proving to be a busy, inspiring and pivotal year, and there is so much news to share. If you can believe it, this year marks the 60th anniversary of the Cape and Islands United Way! And as we look back to where we've been, our message and our mission have never been more relevant.


We hope you will join us as we dive in even deeper to help connect our communities and find more strength in the power of living united. Here's to a wonderful year.



– Mark Skala, President & CEO

Family Dinner Project

Food, fun and conversation about things that matter.

p.s. We will be rolling this out at the Cape Cod Moms Parent Resource Fair on January 26th.

January 2019
