The Delaware KIDS Fund will be pay a surprise visit to the selected charities with a $100.00 check to support their cause. The 25 local non-profits were chosen by the Fund because of their focus on youth initiatives.
“We feel this is a great opportunity to recognize some incredible organizations in our community that work tirelessly on providing a better future for our next generation”, said Thomas J. Hanna, President/Founder – The Delaware KIDS Fund.
If you want to follow the giving trail, The Delaware KIDS Fund will announce each non-profit, daily through its own Facebook page beginning on November 25th (www.facebook.com/DEKIDSFund).
To help kick start the KIDS Fund 25 Days of Giving, the fund also made three separate donations to three area food banks in an effort to help fight the on-going hunger problem prior to the Thanksgiving holiday. The Delaware KIDS Fund recently made three “Hunger Stops” donating $1,000 each to Bridge of Hope Food Basket at Calvary Baptist Church in Wilmington, Limestone Food Closet at Limestone Presbyterian Church in Pike Creek and the Cape Henlopen Food Basket in Rehoboth Beach.
