Sussex County Carolers Collect More than 26,000 Food Items For Those In Need

Posted: Updated:

Georgetown, Del. -  Sussex County's food pantries will be a little more full this holiday season thanks to hearts full of good cheer.

 More than 750 carolers sang in the holidays during the 29th annual Caroling on The Circle event Monday night, Dec. 3, singing traditional and Spanish carols and, along the way, doing their part to help collect more than 26,000 canned goods and other non-perishable food items for the less fortunate of the community.

Monday night's Caroling event, along with collections from Sussex County Council, County employees, numerous schools, groups and businesses, helped this year's preliminary total to top 26,000, down slightly from the 29,000 items collected in 2011. The collection effort, however, will continue through the end of this month, so the final number could go higher.

Items collected will be donated to approximately one dozen area pantries, shelters and church organizations for distribution within Sussex County.
