With all Delaware restaurants only serving take-out until further notice, many small businesses have a hard road ahead of them. Delaware State Chamber posted the #GiftCardChallenge to support local business during the coronavirus (See post). If you’re interested in supporting a local restaurant and which to donate a gift card to a local non-profit, please consider Friendship House. As many of you know, we have wonderful volunteers who bring dinner to both our women’s and men’s Transitional Houses each night. This meal means our residents can focus on their recovery without having to worry about preparing a meal at the end of the day. This meal also means residents are able to sit and eat in community together. Friendship House has begun to take precautions when it comes to these dinners and instilled backup plans to ensure these meals continue without putting volunteers, staff, and residents at risk. A gift card donation to a local restaurant would keep our volunteers at home, reducing their risk of exposure and support a local business.
Gift cards can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to PO Box 1517 Wilmington, DE 19899.
