Cape JROTC cadets volunteer in American Legion food drive

November 20, 2013

Cape Henlopen High School JROTC members spent Saturday, Nov. 2, assisting American Legion Post 5, American Legion Post 17, and Mountaire Poultry in the collection of food donations to provide Thanksgiving meals to needy veterans and their families in Sussex County.

The collection points were at the Safeway, Super Fresh, and Giant supermarkets. The effort was an astounding success for all involved and resulted in the collection of more than 100 complete meals for Cape Region families.
