1 in 5 Delaware Children are Hungry. Give the Gift of Food Security This Holiday Season!
December 16, 2014
Why not give the gift of food security by making a tax-deductible gift to the Delaware KIDS Fund. Your gift will have an amazing front-line impact as the demand at Delaware food banks continues to mount with demand exceeding supply!
244,00 adults and children in Delaware do not have sufficient food – each day, every day – half of whom are children at risk.
The Delaware KIDS Fund was established by Thomas J. Hanna in November 2008 and is an acronym for ‘Kids in Distressed Situations’. It is geared around assisting Delaware area kids that are at risk or in need for whatever reason. Delaware KIDS Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing goods and services such as; clothing, food, shelter, scholarships, educational grants, counseling and mentoring.
Over the last six years, the fund has disbursed $47,146 to worthy organizations and crisis needs in Delaware. Organizations such as ‘The Bridge of Hope Food Bank’ in Wilmington, ‘Student Backpack Program’ of NCCC, ‘Cape Henlopen Food Bank’, ‘Our Lady of Grace Orphanage’ in Newark, ‘The Delaware Food Bank’, ‘Limestone Presbyterian Church’, ‘Family Promise’ of northern NCC and the ‘Sunday Breakfast Mission’, to name a few. Founding partner Harvey, Hanna & Associates has donated over $1 Million dollars to Delaware causes in 1997.
“There is a personal connection with any effort such as this. I’m a father of three kids myself and having been in out of various children’s hospitals, seeing those kids that are less fortunate than others; it hits home. A few years ago, we as a family decided to consolidate our giving and formalize it in the form of this Delaware KIDS Fund,” shares Thomas J. Hanna, VP of Harvey Hanna & Associates.
The Fund was established as a response to Delaware’s ‘food security crisis’, based on the premise that ‘no child of any age can flourish and grow without adequate nutrition’ and has grown to encompass much more since its’ conception. The Delaware KIDS Fund not only supplies nutrition for Delaware youth’s physical growth, it also helps to feed their minds through the mentoring program, counseling, scholarships and educational grants.
