Thank You, Saddle Ridge!
The generous residents of the Saddle Ridge community in Lewes donated enough groceries to fill the van of organizer Cherie Mills. Mills sent out an email to the community to generate interest in the donation project, and for weeks residents dropped off donations at the community clubhouse or even at her door. On November 17, 2020, Mills delivered twenty-four large boxes of groceries for our clients. Shown here with the donation are Mark Sievers and Susan Schranck of the Cape Henlopen Food Basket and Cherie Mills of Saddle Ridge. Thank you, Saddle Ridge!
