Cape Henlopen Educational Foundation members delivered more than $15,000 worth of donated school supplies to all district schools Aug. 30, helping to stock supply shelves for all the district’s teachers.
Now in its fourth year, the Caravan of Caring school supply drive supports teachers who spend their own money each year to buy materials for students who come to school without paper, notebooks, pencils and other necessary items.
Sydney’s Restaurant and Lounge, Lefty’s Alley & Eats, Schell Brothers and Staples hosted donation drop-off boxes Aug. 1-25, where community members deposited binders, pocket folders, zip drives, composition books, colored pencils, crayons, glue sticks, scissors, earbuds, sanitizer, tissues and more.

Cape Henlopen School District Preparing For Safe & Successful School Year
By Cody Decker
SUSSEX COUNTY, Del.- Students will return to class nine days from now in the Cape Henlopen School District.
"The Cape Henlopen School District is extremely fortunate to have the support of the Cape Henlopen Educational Foundation (CHEF). The Foundation provides additional resources and opportunities to the students and staff of our district in the areas of academics, the arts, and anti-bullying programs. The dedication and efforts of CHEF and the members of the CHEF Board are greatly appreciated!"
"Thanks to the funding provided by CHEF, all our 5th grade students in the CHSD were able to participate in their first Science Fair. This learning opportunity allowed over 375 students the possibility of exploring and questioning the world around them."
5th grade teacher Rehoboth Elementary School
"Because of CHEF's belief in the arts and education, my daughter has received help allowing her to express her talents. Without CHEF's help, this would have been financially impossible."
