Join Delaware tourism industry in showing support for frontline workers May 4

Share #ThanksDE Salute on social media at 7 p.m.
May 3, 2020

Join the #ThanksDE movement by posting photos on social media thanking Delaware’s frontline workers at 7 p.m., Monday, May 4.

Delaware’s tourism industry will come together to honor healthcare workers, first responders and essential workers on Monday evening.

Starting at 7 p.m. tourist attractions and hotels across Delaware will be bathed in blue light to say thank those who have served the state’s citizens so unselfishly throughout the coronavirus pandemic. They will also be posting their photos on social media.

In addition, restaurants throughout Delaware are thanking healthcare and frontline workers by collecting donations to buy meals for them.

“From healthcare workers to the police officers, firefighters, EMTs, grocery store workers and transit drivers, these folks have stepped up to protect and provide for the rest of us during a challenging time,” Gov. John Carney said. “This effort, organized by the Delaware Tourism Office, is a small but fitting tribute to them.”

Delaware attractions will share on social media at 7 p.m. photos of their attractions lit in blue and thank you signs using the hashtag #ThanksDE. All Delawareans are encouraged to post their own photos on social media. And look for your favorite destinations and restaurants on social media to see what they are doing to thank the people who keep us all safe.

In Sussex County the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand will be lit up at 7:45 p.m.

In addition, La Vida Hospitality (Crooked Hammock Brewery, Fork & Flask and Taco Reho) is working provide support and resources to food banks, local shelters, nonprofit organizations and community groups.
