Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honors Society at 4Cs to Host Toy and Gift Drive for Foster-Care Families

November 17, 2021

Students in the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) honors society at Cape Cod Community College will be helping foster families across the Cape and Islands have a happier holiday thanks to a community drive to support nonprofit organizations in the region. On Saturday, November 20 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., members of the community are welcome to come to the College’s West Barnstable campus to donate toys and gifts that will support Kind Hearts for Kids in Bourne and Cape Cod Foster Closet in Orleans.

Community members are encouraged to come to the Grossman Commons building to drop off items that have been requested by children and their foster families, including:

  • Gift cards to businesses such as Target, Old Navy, Dunkin Donuts, Amazon, Michael’s, Rue21, and Starbucks
  • Visa gift cards
  • Fleece throw blankets
  • Medium-sized duffel bags
  • Artificial Christmas trees
  • Lego toy sets
  • Check donations made out to Kind Hearts for Kids and the Cape Cod Foster Closet

Drop-offs are welcome at any time between 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., with a designated area that will be

marked outside of the Zammer Dining Hall on the first floor of the Grossman Commons building. For easiest access, community members are encouraged to park in Lot 9, then walk up to the entrance of Grossman Commons with the “Cafeteria” sign over the door on the left.

Phi Theta Kappa is the renowned international honor society for two-year colleges, with a network of more than 3.5 million members around the world. Cape Cod Community College’s chapter, Alpha Upsilon Mu, has been recognized as one of the premiere PTK organizations in the United States, winning multiple awards for academic and student accomplishments every year.
