The team who donated:

Connie Barba of Wilmington said she wanted to help after hearing about long lines at the Food Bank and that they were in need of additional food supplies.
“Giving to the Food Bank of Delaware has a direct impact on the lives of people around us, and we didn’t want anyone to go hungry,” she said. “And it’s important to give back where you live and work, so I was elated that my fellow agents shared the same thoughts and responded so generously.”
