Campout successfully raises funds, presents 1,100 winter coats for Newport children


The Delaware Kids Fund presented more than a thousand coats to Newport-area children earlier this week.

Funds for the coats were raised fromthe Operation Warm Newport campout as two dozen participants braved the late fall weather.

A campground was set up in the heart of Newport from Nov. 16-18 in an effort aimed at raising funds for the purchase of 1,100 brand new coats for the 1,100 elementary school children in Newport. Seventy-one percent or 1,100 children live at or below the poverty line.
