Held at James Street Tavern, in Newport, The 5th Annual Delaware KIDS Fund Holiday Food Drive helped feed over 12,000 local kids in need. The event featured Philadelphia Eagles Wide Receiver, Riley Cooper and former Flyer great, Bob “The Hound” Kelly. Everyone enjoyed live music, great tasting food and drinks, all for a great cause. The event also featured a fun “challenge” offered up by ARS Fleet Service Owner/Operator, Patrick Connell. Connell told Eagles WR that if Riley scored in the Thursday night game vs. the Bengals, ARS would donate $1,000. The next night, early in the second quarter and a 11 yards later, Riley hauled in a $1,000 touchdown catch! It was a great 24 hours for the Delaware KIDS Fund.

Contemplate that fact as we prepare to celebrate the holidays. This challenge is known as food insecurity.
