It was a gorgeous morning in Newport, Delaware to be raising money for the Delaware KIDS Fund food pantry going into Richardson Park Elementary School.
This year we recognize Pat Dougherty as the hardest working volunteer with the first ever, “Gilmore Award” – in honor of the late Helen Gilmore. Helen was a long time Harvey, Hanna & Associates employee and KIDS Fund volunteer – managing the registration tables every year like a General.
Thank you to all our sponsors, the Town of Newport, Newport PD, NCCPD, Minquas Fire Company, participants and volunteers for raising enough to open a brand new food pantry in Richardson Park Elementary School!
KIDS Fund recently visited the Cape Henlopen Food Basket to present a gift of $1,000
for the 2019 winter season.
Henlopen Food Basket provides food support to more than 2,160 households and 6,313
individuals each month (2,006 of
which are children). The gift was timed to help Cape Henlopen Food Basket
prepare for higher food demand during the winter months.
KIDS Fund has proudly donated over $10,000 to the Cape Henlopen Food Basket
The Delaware KIDS Fund and Harvey Hanna celebrated the opening of a brand new Delaware KIDS Fund Food Pantry at Newport’s Richey Elementary School. A high percentage of children at this school live at or below the poverty line and the food pantry along with a backpack program serve as a critical resource to local students in need. The pantry was established in partnership with The Food Bank of Delaware and was funded entirely from the 9th Annual Delaware KIDS Fund 5K proceeds. #communitystrong
In 2011, The Delaware KIDS Fund launched its Tuition Assistance Program and every year, The KIDS Fund selects 5 local students to support in their educational goals by offering financial assistance to be used towards tuition. One of the first recipients, Jada Stephens submitted a letter of appreciation recently. Congrats to Jada on all of her success! The Delaware KIDS Fund is proud!
