550 Blankets to Be Distributed Today to Delawareans Who Are Homeless

Feb 08, 2013 -- 5:27am

Nine nonprofit organizations from across the state will receive 550 blankets today to distribute to people who are homeless in Delaware. 

This effort is being led by the Division of State Service Centers, with funds provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services under the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program. 

Under the leadership of Dr. Anne Farley, the Division of State Service Centers has sought ways that state programs could collaborate to better serve the community and meet the needs of underserved populations.  This vision prompted two state workers to join forces and come up with the idea of distributing blankets. 

The nonprofit organizations will distribute the blankets to homeless populations they serve across the state.
