TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

The weather forecast on September 30th called for 30% rain for the first annual Cardboard Box City fundraiser sponsored by Family Promise of Northern New Castle County, but in Hockessin there was 100% rain from 7:00-10:00pm.  More than eighty people along with participants from fourteen organizations stuck around, however, to sleep out in wet cardboard boxes and in the process raising $9,000 to support homeless families.  The event made all participants grateful for their warm – and dry – beds at home.  For more on the event’s program featuring Senator Chris Coons, County Council President Tom Kovach, DHSS secretary Rita Landgraf, and entertainers Ray Seemans, Ross Troy, Kiki Marshall, and Lori Citro, see the earlier TSD post here.
