The Voices of WE CAN:
2020 WE CAN Community Breakfast Awards:
Exceptional Community Partner: COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PARTNERSHIP
The CDP is the go-to organization helping small businesses on the lower and outer Cape, including providing locally owned small businesses with business assistance and loan capital. In 2019, the CDP and WE CAN partnered in bringing our GROW program for women entrepreneurs to the outer Cape, thanks to a Mass Capital Growth grant. Through this collaboration, the CDP and WE CAN have helped bring over 20 women closer to economic self-sufficiency. We thank the CDP for their exceptional commitment to improving the lives of women on the lower Cape, and creating opportunities for Cape Cod families to thrive.
Distinguished Volunteers: VIRGINIA AUCIELLO SULLIVAN and JEAN MOJO
Jean and Virginia are long-time WE CAN volunteers, and together they founded our GROW program in 2016. Their commitment, energy, creativity, and passion to nurture women entrepreneurs is evident from the success of the 75 women who have benefited from this program. We thank Virginia and Jean for their ability to help women gain self-confidence while they are growing their businesses, for their unflagging kindness, and for sharing their own expertise and experience as business executives.
Celebrated Supporters: DEBBIE AND JOHN TODD
Debbie and John have been champions of WE CAN’s mission for over a decade. Debbie served on the WE CAN board from 2008 to 2019, and she is the brains behind our FileMaker PRO database, which she built specifically for WE CAN and which enables us to share information, track all of our services, and document our work with efficiency and ease. If that weren’t enough, Debbie has been active on our Words, Wit, and Wisdom Committee, even taking a turn as the Chair. John has served on our Finance Committee for many years, and we have benefitted from his expertise. Together, Debbie and John made it possible for WE CAN to purchase our current building on Route 28 in Harwich Port. Their ongoing support and generosity have enabled us to grow, and thus empower countless women on Cape Cod. We are so grateful to have them as volunteers, supporters, and advocates.
