“The Captain’s Lady staff is beyond excited to be working the Food Bank of Delaware this year,” said Captain Bob Trowbridge. “Partnering with an organization that helps feed our local community by supplying food and helping teach the skills necessary to feed our community are gratifying. We thank them for the opportunity to be a part of the fight against hunger by giving us the chance to help raise money for their program.”
“We are so excited about this event series,” said Food Bank of Delaware Milford Branch Director Chad Robinson. “Providing our students an opportunity like this is incredibly valuable and we look forward to meeting new friends on board the Captain’s Lady, while raising money to help support our students and their education.”
