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

New Coats for Needy Kids Thanks to Weekend Campers

Dozens of brave campers withstood chilly temps and windy conditions this weekend to take part in the first ever Delaware KIDS Fund Camping Out for Coats. The Delaware KIDS Fund — a nonprofit established by the leading real estate development company Harvey Hanna — partnered with Operation Warm on the fundraiser to supply new winter jackets for every elementary school child in Newport.

“We were incredible happy to reach our goal,” said Harvey Hanna’s Ryan Kennedy, a fundraising target sufficient to purchase 1,100 new coats for the Newport kids, nearly three quarters of whom are at or below the poverty line.  “Our offices are here in Newport, and we have so many projects in this area. This is just unacceptable,” said Kennedy. Each of the brand new winter coats will be personalized and customized to each child’s size, color preference and weight.
