This is fundraising initiative is close to home for Mid-Cape because of their significant number of Veteran employees. In an interview, Jeff Bryant, a Mid-Cape Team member and Army and National Guard Veteran, answers what the biggest challenge he has seen being a veteran on the Cape with, “The lack of awareness and recognition for veterans on the cape. There are a lot of organizations out there, but with the military changing, and things getting more threating, to have that support for someone when they return so that they are able to recover is crucial.” With over 27,000 veterans living on Cape Cod, many of whom are suffering from various degrees of mental illness, homelessness, or job insecurity, Mid-Cape felt as though these veterans need help now, more than ever. These types of large changes and immense uncertainties can often be a trigger for people’s mental health, particularly for those who have experienced previous trauma like many of the communities’ veterans. Mid-Cape President, Jack Stevenson states, “Coming together during these challenging times to support each other and our under-represented populations is how this community will come out of this stronger than before.” Mid-Cape Home Centers is in its 125th year of business on Cape Cod and the South Shore. Today more than ever, Mid-Cape is dedicated to providing the building supplies that will help southeastern Massachusetts remain one of the best places to live in America. More than just a lumber and building supply company, Mid-Cape’s specialty is experience that builds. Experience that builds convenience, experience that builds trust, and experience that builds communities.
