100 Women Who Care of Southern Delaware Presents Check to Richard Allen Coalition
On Thursday, August 12, 100 Women Who Care of Southern Delaware presented a check for $7,500 to the Richard Allen Coalition, Inc. (RAC) to aid with necessary renovations to the Richard Allen School in Georgetown, Delaware.
The school opened its doors in the 1920s as one of 80 schools built by philanthropist Pierre S. DuPont for African-American children in Delaware. One of the “DuPont Colored Schools,” it continued to serve as the heart of the African-American community for more than a half-century.
In 2010, a small group came together to form the Richard Allen Coalition, Inc. They are a diverse group with a common goal: to restore the school so it can once again be a cultural, civic, and educational center. For more information: richardallenschoolgeorgetown.com. ▼
