Donor Guidelines

  • Thank you for considering a donation to our students in need at Cape Henlopen School District! If you or your organization are interested in holding a school supply donation drive for our District, please contact the Cape Henlopen Educational Foundation. All school supplies will go towards their Caravan of Caring event held at the start of each school year so that CHEF and the District can ensure the donations are shared across all of the schools. 

    Below are a few considerations to make prior to donating or organizing a donation drive:

    • Please make sure the items you are collecting and/or donating are listed as a current need below. 
    • Contact the District Homeless Liaisons prior to collecting or donating items. They should be made aware of the donations and can confirm that the list of the current needs you are working off of is up to date and accurate. 
    • Donated items must be new.
