Community Food Drive! 

 Before you come, please consider bringing along a gift of food to "stuff" in a boat provided by Nautical Academies Captain's School.  Please note that we are only able to accept non-perishable items.  Many of our local families also struggle to care for their four-legged family members. Pet food donations are welcome, and many other household items, including toiletries, are appreciated.  The need in our community continues to grow and this partnership aims to help connect families with food insecurities to valuable resources during the holiday season.  

Cash donations are welcome;  one hundred percent of all donations will go to the Cape Henlopen Food Basket.  If you have any questions, please give us a call at 302.645.7670 x 207.  

LHS extends a heartfelt thank you to the Tumas Family, Owners of the Nautical Academics Captain's School located on Pilottown Road in Lewes,  for partnering with LHS to provide this opportunity to our community.  More information on Nautical Academies can be found here

The boat will be located on the historic main campus at
