Another inspiring morning at The Delaware KIDS Fund and Harvey, Hanna & Associates, Inc.. We had the pleasure of supporting amazing young minds from Mrs. Nicole Johnson’s (Mrs. J!) Kindergarten and First grade class at Newport’s Richey Elementary School. Our group was fortunate enough to pitch in (along with other local businesses) for the purchase of new iPads to help reinforce the learning experiences and engaging these amazing students who are kinesethic, visual, and/or auditory learners. The BEST PART, we had the chance to meet the kiddos today and watch them work their iPads. Support your community and support our next generation. If everyone pitches in and works together – the community we live, work and play in – will continue to be a powerful (and safe) place in the future.
KIDS Fund Family Holiday Experience
The Delaware KIDS Fund worked with local agencies during the 2016 Holiday Season selecting four local, deserving families in need by providing Christmas gift for the children, financial assistance for the parents and a holiday meal for the entire family to enjoy. Working with partner agencies (Child, Inc., Lutheran Community Services and The Delaware Army National Guard) – the DE KIDS Fund was able to identify local families in need. The campaign was designed to inspire confidence and provide temporary relief for the Holiday Season. $11,700 of goods, services and gifts were provided in total.
