Sussex County: ALL IN
Delaware, and particularly Sussex County, has been impacted significantly by both the pandemic and epidemic over this past year. With surges in both COVID-19 and overdose deaths, we have been hit very hard in 2020.
With that being said, our community and our partners have responded heroically in helping our friends, families, co-workers, and agencies during these tough times. We have seen loss of businesses, non-profits, and life in unprecedented numbers, all occurring within the shadow of a country that appears to have growing issues of division. Our communities, state, and country are experiencing through COVID-19 a shared trauma/event that is having, and will have, ripples of impact over the next decade and beyond. It would be easy to fold our tents, pack our bags, and walk away. That is not what Sussex countians are about. Our organization, our partners, and our community have been ALL IN! - READ MORE
