SUSSEX Co., Del. - It appears Sussex County's food pantries have a reason to rejoice this holiday.
More than 750 carolers showed up to the 29th annual Caroling on The Circle event in Georgetown Monday night, bringing with them 26,000 food items. These will be donated to approximately a dozen area pantries, shelters and church organizations in the county.
The county will extend its collection effort through the end of December. You can drop off canned goods and non-perishable food items between 8:30 AM and 4:40 PM, Monday through Friday at the County Administrative Offices building on The Circle or the West Complex offices on U.S. 113.
