Harvey Hanna & Associates presented a check for $7,000 as part of a “Community Day” event that distributed commemorative bricks from the former General Motors plant on Boxwood Road that were purchased by area residents.

The check was presented to Richie Elementary School Food Pantry (where roughly two-thirds of children come from households at or below the poverty line).

The bricks were gathered from the former GM assembly plant after demolition began in November 2018 and were sold for $5 and $10 to buyers both in Delaware, and as far away as California, Canada and parts of Europe.

The plant is currently in the process of being demolished as part of a planned multi-phase redevelopment that will transform the site into a business and distribution campus that could create thousands of new jobs for Delaware residents.
