Cape Community Fund seeks donations During the month of Decem- ber, the Cape Community Fund holds its holiday drive to raise money to help neighbors within the Cape Henlopen community. The Cape Community Fund was established to provide emer- gency help to residents of the Cape Henlopen School District. Born out of an effort to sup- port a fellow classmate, the fund was established by members of Lewes High School’s Class of 1969 when alumni became aware of a greater need for assistance in times of crisis within the local community. During the holiday season, organizers ask the Cape commu- nity to assist others by making a donation to the fund to increase the impact within the region. All monies raised are donated back locally to support fellow resi- dents in times of critical need.
