First State MHA assists food drives in Kent and Sussex counties

December 26, 2017

First State Manufactured Housing Association members donated generously to help make the 2017 holiday season more joyful. Over $2,000 worth of nonperishable items were delivered to food pantries around Kent and Sussex counties.

"Caroling on The Circle continues to be a tremendous success year after year solely because of the giving spirit within our community, particularly from partners like First State Manufactured Housing Association," said Todd Lawson, Sussex County administrator. "We literally could not do this without the generosity of others. Thanks to their efforts, we can make a difference in the lives of so many Sussex County families this holiday season."

"The First State Manufactured Housing Association and its members made such a significant impact on the amount of nonperishable food that we were able to donate to three local pantries through the Capital Holiday Celebration Food Drive. The holiday season is a little brighter for many families in Kent County because of their generosity. We are so very thankful for the support of community members like them," said Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce Director of Special Events/Executive Assistant Cristal Brenneman.

"We have been fortunate 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 executive. "This time of the year is perfect for giving; the food drives will help stock the shelves of local food pantries and provide support for many families in need."
