The Gallo Gives Foundation Awards Community Donations

Center For Inland Bays

As part of its continual effort to make a difference in the community in which it lives and serves, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Gallo Realty’s Gallo Gives Foundation awarded its 2021 second-quarter donations to, Boardwalk Buddy Walk Fund, Camp Arrowhead, Beebe Medical Foundation, Horsey Family Youth Foundation, Radio Rehoboth, and Delaware Center for the Inland Bays.  The total amount donated for this quarter was $9,500.

$2,000.00 was donated to the Boardwalk Buddy Walk Fund.  The Boardwalk Buddy Walk was established to create a community where people with Down Syndrome, or any cognitive disorder, can live, learn, work, and play. Each year supporters walk the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk to raise awareness of the special qualities of individuals with Down syndrome and the need to include them in the communities.  To help with the annual walk or learn more about the organization, visit ds-stride.org/boardwalkbuddywalk.

$2,000 was awarded to Camp Arrowhead. The funds were allocated for the assistance in constructing a new community building.  The property is a unique camp, educational, and retreat center, made up of diverse and faithful people, that provides a safe natural environment to learn about self, community, nature, and God. Their vision is to be a sacred place for building community, nurturing all people, and spreading love in the world.   The new building will allow for all of this and create a safe space for community members to meet.   For more about the Camp’s campaign, visit https://www.camparrowhead.net

$1,500 was granted to The Beebe Medical Foundation.  The funds were specifically offered for the Lisa Henderson Scholarship Fund.  Sadly, Lisa recently lost her battle with cancer.  She was an Oncology Nurse at Tunnel Cancer Center in Rehoboth Beach, DE where she became the Nursing Manager for Oncology. Lisa loved being a nurse more than anything. Lisa had spent a large part of her life caring and nurturing others.  To honor Lisa, a nursing scholarship has been established at the Beebe School of Nursing in Lewes.  For those wishing to carry on her legacy in oncology nursing. Any donations can be sent to: Beebe Medical Foundation, 902 Savannah Road, Lewes, DE 19958.

$1,500 was dedicated to Horsey Family Youth Foundation.  The foundation was designed to benefit the youth of Sussex County, Delaware.  The funds donated will benefit children in need and offer after school educational and athletic activities to keep these young children off the streets.  The family is an advocate to giving back to the community.   For more details on the Horsey Family and its Foundation visit https://www.horseyfamilyyouthfoundation.org

 

$1,500 was presented to Radio Rehoboth. As a non-profit, non-commercial community radio station, they provide programming that can’t be heard anywhere else in the state. The station plays about anything on a musical scale.  In addition, they offer a variety of news and public affairs programs that provide balance and all points of view within the region.
