We Care About Our Community

Our staff has been working hard in the last week to provide food and support for so many great organizations in the area! We have given over $10,000 in produce, dairy and egg products to The Food Bank of Delaware, the Interfaith Mission Shelter, the Emmanuel Church Food Pantry, the Holy Trinity Community Food Pantry, and the House of Pride Food Pantry of Dover. The Food Bank supplied over 2,400 cars at a drive through food pantry on property with care packages with the support of Dover Downs and Dover Motorsports. We will continue to give as much as we can this week in order help our community during this time. Stay safe.
