The school pantries are open to registered families Monday-Friday, during the hours of school operation or by hours designated by the District School.
The Harry K Foundation has been busy working towards accomplishing the many goals set forth to distribute the monies gathered for the H4 initiative.
Collaborating with the Community Resource Center, the Harry K Foundation continues to support the Baby Pantry. It is located at 37510 Oyster House Road, in Rehoboth. The hours of operation are 9am until noon, the 2nd Monday and 4th Thursday of every month.
The foundation has become the only independent foundation that can issue the Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). Over the last year, the Harry K Foundation has been Hard at work, sponsoring students in the Delaware Food Bank Backpack Program and helping to feed children through the Second Chance Warrior Program.
Recently, the Harry K Foundation has formalized its structure by establishing a Board of Directors and applying for grants to expand the monetary base for feeding the children. This year, Mr. Keswani's goals are to increase the number of pantries as well as sustain the number of pantries already in operation as well as to add more children to the Backpack Program. The Foundation has received grants from the Carl M. Freeman Foundation, Sussex County, and the Walmart Foundation.
The Harry K Foundation is already busy at work planning this year's charity ball set for Saturday, December 16, 2017, at the Rehoboth Beach Country Club. Tickets will be on sale soon...donations are always being encouraged and accepted!
