Why do YOU Live United?


Ever wonder why someone aligns with a particular project, program or mission?

Last month, we visited several of our amazing community leaders who choose to support the Cape and Islands United Way. Here's a sneak peak of what they said.

Featuring Rana Murphy (Eastern Bank) Jennifer McCartin (Sotheby’s International Realty), Shawn DeLude (Nauset Disposal) and Donna Morris (RPM Carpets and Floor Coverings)

Coming Up


2nd Annual Community Baby Shower

Sunday, April 28th


Later this month, 50 new and expectant families in our community will be showered with critical resources to help them raise healthy, happy babies.


See how our community is galvanizing around our youngest citizens, and how you can help.





Best Night 21

Sunday, June 30th


It all started with a garden party.

Now, 21 years later, we can take a look back at all that's been accomplished – and a look ahead as we continue to grow and take care of our community.


If you are interested in becoming a corporate sponsor or a food/beverage sponsor, we would love to have you!  Please contact Mark Skala at mskala@uwcapecod.org for more information.


March Highlights


The Importance of Reading Aloud


We know that reading aloud to young children promotes early literacy skills and healthy brain development. So we are thrilled to share that last month, we were able to donate hundreds of books back into our community.


At our March United event at the JFK Museum we collected new books for Reach Out and Read. The evening was hosted by Women United and featured best-selling author Lauren Wolk as guest speaker.


Last week, we brought more than 300 gently used books to the Community Health Center of Cape Cod, through our partnership with CapeSpace.



What a Hoot!


A huge thank you to our community for coming out to our first ever comedy night at the Cotuit Center for the Arts: Laugh United.  We had a full house and lots of laughs, all in the spirit of lifting each other up. 

And special thanks to our sponsors, Keller Company, Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston, Eastern Bank, HyLine Cruises, Cape Air, Jeffrey and Nancy Bilizekian and CCB Media.
