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.
