Project Hug

From Kristin Mullen of the Governor’s Advisory Council for Exceptional Citizens (GACEC):

The Governor’s Advisory Council for Exceptional Citizens (GACEC) and the Organization of Adult Alumni and Students in Service (OAASIS) are delighted to report that Project Hug is in full swing and receiving terrific support from the community! This special project focused on providing warmth, smiles and hugs to children who are homeless or in foster care in Delaware has received so many wonderful items already, and we are still two weeks away from the deadline for donations.

We are also happy to say that several area organizations have committed to supporting Project Hug’s efforts. We are grateful to Camden Wal-Mart, Fleece for Keeps, Helping Hands Quilt Guild and theMrs. Delaware United States Pageant for joining us as supporting partners.

There’s still time to spread the word and collect more hugs! Please share the attached flyer far and wide and help us spread the word. A current list of collection sites for donations is included below. (Valid as of January 30, 2012) Collection sites are being added daily, and can be found on the GACEC’s website at
