Members of the First State Manufactured Housing Association donated over $3,000 worth of nonperishable items were delivered to food banks around Kent and Sussex counties.

“After more than three decades of bringing the community together to help those in need, Caroling on the Circle continues to be a success, in part, because of organizations like First State Manufactured Housing Association,” said Sussex County Administrator Todd F. Lawson. “We thank all our partners for their continued generosity and support of this program.”

“The generosity of the First State Manufactured Housing Association and its members made such a significant impact on the amount of nonperishable food that was donated to three local pantries through the Capital Holiday Celebration. The food drive is a wonderful opportunity to help make the holiday season a little brighter for many families in Kent County. We are very thankful for the support of community members like them,” said Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce Director of Special Events/Executive Assistant Cristal Brenneman.

“It’s become our tradition to participate in the food drives to benefit the communities we serve, and we are very thankful to our members who donate so generously to those less fortunate during the holiday season," said Jen Allen, First State Manufactured Housing Association’s executive director. "Now is the perfect time for giving; the food drives will help stock the shelves of local food banks and provide support for many families in need.”
