SoDel Cares, the philanthropic arm of SoDel Concepts, recently donated $4,000 to the Delaware Adolescent Program Inc., which provides a standards-based school program for pregnant and parenting teens.
The program started in 1969 to support young, pregnant women and help them continue their education. Today, DAPI now serves hundreds of girls in New Castle, Kent and Sussex county centers. The nonprofit organization provides academic instruction, social services, child care, on-site therapeutic counseling and health services.
“DAPI aids teens during a difficult time,” said Scott Kammerer, president of SoDel Concepts, which has 10 restaurants in Sussex County.
“The organization helps young women keep up with their academics. It’s so important to have a high school degree in today’s competitive marketplace,” he said. “DAPI also gives them the tools they need to cope with challenges and face a future with hope. We’re pleased to donate to an organization with a history of providing a much-needed service in our community.”
