SoDel Cares awards nearly $100,000 in grants to local nonprofits
SoDel Cares, the philanthropic arm of SoDel Concepts, recently awarded nearly $100,000 in grants to Delaware organizations. The checks were distributed Feb. 25 at the hospitality group’s corporate office in Rehoboth Beach. SoDel Concepts owns 12 restaurants in coastal Sussex County, and SoDel Cares was founded in 2015 to honor the philanthropic work of the company’s founder, the late Matt Haley. The foundation helps local organizations that assist children, at-risk youth and adults, and the elderly.
“The primary mission of SoDel Cares is to contribute in a positive way to the communities in which we do business,” said Scott Kammerer, SoDel Concepts president. In addition to the primary fall fundraiser, the organization holds the SoDel Cares 5K in Rehoboth Beach and the SoDel Concepts/Woodford Reserve Food Fight at The Clubhouse at Baywood in Millsboro. “The new events have allowed us to help more organizations than before,” Kammerer said. “It’s a lot of work to pull off each fundraiser. Organizing them is a team effort; the whole SoDel family gets involved. I am incredibly proud of them and their dedication to our community.”
