Many families at Air Station Cape Cod are one income families with an average of 2- 3 children. They really appreciate the TIF events and toys. The toys ease the stress of parents and provide the children new outlets of play.
"Families were most appreciative of the toys… it gave the families a sense of appreciation by the base, BGCA, and TIF. As a whole, it was a great community morale builder."
