The DKF broke last year’s “year-end appeal” record – by raising an all- time fundraising high of $34,007 during their annual appeal. The KIDS Fund beat their goal by $8,000 and since 2008, the KIDS Fund and Harvey, Hanna & Associates team has collected over $132,000 from their annual appeal. Held every year during the holiday season, the program was designed to combat the food insecurity issue amongst Delaware children. Currently, 1 in 5 kids suffer from food insecurity.

The Delaware KIDS Fund is administered by Harvey, Hanna & Associates (HHA) of Wilmington. The Cape Henlopen Food Basket provides food support to more than 200 families each month, encompassing nearly 600 adults and children.
