Dianne Stevens (l) and Cindy DeEmedio (r) Prepare lunches for Immanuel Shelter guests. 

To date, over 3,200 lunches have been provided.

“Several members of the GFWC Zwaanendael Women's Club have partnered with Beebe Hospital, Nanticoke Hospital and the Sussex County First Responders to cut and sew a variety of protective face masks. Hundreds have been delivered so far. Some of our members are also teaming with the Volunteer DE Face Mask Project to obtain supplies and deliver finished masks to a central location for distribution. The group can also be found on Facebook at vol.DE Face Mask Project.”

Lynn Barberi

“I have made a total of 45 masks and counting.  If anyone wants any, I will be glad to make them.  You can pick them up on my front  porch after I call you when they are ready.  I make them in faith and hope , so please don’t try to pay me for them.  If anyone has single fold bias tape or shoelaces they want to donate, I'd be grateful for those.  You could leave them on my porch also.  The nurses are wearing them for long periods of time and the elastic is causing sore ears.”
