The Story

Join the Delaware KIDS Fund and the local community as we raise money to purchase coats for 1,100 elementary children in Newport, Delaware.

Today in Newport, 71% of elementary school children in Newport are living at or below the poverty line (3 times the national average).
In an effort to raise funds to purchase coats (in partnership with Operation Warm), The Delaware KIDS Fund invites you to "Camp Out for Coats" in Newport. The full camping experience in the middle of a town that needs our help. Campers will sleep under the stars on Thursday, Nov. 16th, Friday, Nov. 17th while the camping experience concludes on the afternoon of Saturday, Nov. 18th. Bonfires, games, fire-side chats, Gable Music Ventures Campfire music  and more. Bathrooms will be available on-site as well as Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner at our Campsite Grill. The camp site will be secure and the Delaware KIDS Fund will staff the campsite with a dedicated group of volunteers working as security from partnership company, Harvey, Hanna & Associates.

Interested in camping? Please sign up by emailing Ryan Kennedy (Delaware KIDS Fund), [email protected] Though anyone can camp, we enourage you to raise money based on the number of nights you camp. Fundraising Goals for one night are set at $250, two nights are set at $500. Tell your friends, family, colleagues and feel free to share this donation portal for your camping experience. 


The Delaware KIDS Fund is 501c3 non-profit organization inspired by Thomas J. Hanna and Thom Harvey of local developer, Harvey, Hanna & Associates. The Delaware KIDS Fund is dedicated to providing goods, services, food and financial assistance to children at risk and in distressed situations.

Join us this November as we raise awareness and help our local children in need! It's more than a coat. This will create confidence for a young mind. He or she will feel inspired and loved - prompting them to stay in school and learn. Help us support our next generation!

As camp drew to a close at 12 noon today - we collected one more on-site donation from our friends in New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer's office. Maria Sacco, thank YOU for your generous donation..and thanks to each and everyone one of our friends, family, colleagues and even strangers off the street for joining us on this adventure. We are not done yet but happy to close down camp with 1,100 coats in our camp closet. These coats will be donated to each and every single elementary school student in Newport, Delaware. For the past few evenings, we battled cold and windy elements but nothing could take way from the overwhealming feelings and emotions of inspiration, friendship, teamwork, determination and love. Stay tuned for on-going updates over the next few days. We are very excited for November 30th..the day we get to see the expressions of every single kid as they receive a brand new coat. It's more than a coat...

Love,

The DE KIDS Fund Campers
