Cape Cod Brewster

DeSilva named 2014 Person of the Year

Brewster resident Michelle DeSilva has been named 2014 Person of the Year for her dedication to continuing the work begun by her son Dylan providing care packages to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

 

The non-profit organization Cape Cod Cares for the Troops was started by Dylan DeSilva as a Boy Scout project with 5 care packages sent to a single unit in Iraq. Today, Dylan (the youngest of four childern) is a college graduate now living and working for a railroad in Ohio. But thanks to Michelle's quiet leadership, the organization Dylan started continues the mission to provide a piece of home to our troops. Ten years since beginning, more than 17,000 packages have been assembled and shipped.

 

Michelle will be honored in the Brewster in Bloom parade on May 4th and as a special guest during the BCC Annual Meeting and Dinner. You can also learn more about her in the May issue of the Best of Brewster TV show.
