COMMUNITY  OUTREACH

  • Primeros Pasos

    Georgetown, Delaware

    Feed the Children Heart and Soul has grown from volunteering nine months [October through June] to year-round in this multicultural preschool.  Volunteers prepare a home cooked meal once a week for up to 60 children, as well as snacks throughout the summer. In the beginning, the ministry provided weekend backpacks of food for eight of the children in food-insecure households during the school year. This past year, Chris cooperated with the Delaware Food Bank, arranging for 40 children to receive backpacks of food.


    Primeros Paso has now moved to a new, more spacious facility in Georgetown with a kitchen, making it possible for our volunteers to provide two meals and two snacks for each child, ages one to five.  Volunteers are needed to cook on some Wednesdays from 9-11:30. 

    For more information or if you would be willing to spend a few hours helping to cook, please contact Karen Kohn at 302-947-0278 or by email.

  • Cape Henlopen Community Bookmobile

    Rehoboth and Lewes, Delaware

    Chris partners with the Dept. of Education’s summer food service program to coordinate books with meals. She and her volunteers travel with the bookmobile and serve food to children, 18 and under, in three underserved communities in the Rehoboth and Lewes area. Volunteers interact with the 60 children participating in this food program by playing games, reading or conversing. View article featured in Cape Gazette dated September 20, 2017.

  • Angel Tree

    Nearby Communities

    At Christmas, 120 gifts are collected from members of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church and the Kindness Committee of the Villages of Herring Creek (a new supporter!). The gifts are given to needy children and adults at Primeros Pasos and the Community Resource Center. Donors take an angel from a tree which has information about the need of the recipient. The donor buys the gift, wraps it, places the angel on it so one knows who should receive it, and takes it to the church.
