This year’s Heart & Sole program provided 125 children with book bags stuffed with school supplies and a $25 gift card for new shoes. In fact, we received such an overabundance of supplies that we were able to donate supplies to 9 schools within Smyrna, Capital, Caesar Rodney, Lake Forest and Polytech school districts! Since CHHH services kids from all over Kent County we didn't want to just provide supplies to one school district but wanted to include as many as possible.
We received monetary donations from many local organizations in our community to help support our back to school program: Masonic Charities of Delaware, Milford Lions Club, Kent Sussex Industries, Inc., Camden-Wyoming Rotary Club, Orchard Church of Magnolia, and DE Veterans Post 2. In addition to these monetary donations, many companies and individuals brought in supplies including Bayhealth, Del-One FCU, Lakeview Realty, Ray Book and Associates, Camden-Wyoming Rotary Club, Wyoming Moose Lodge and Champion Club Community.
Thank you for your continuing support!
