Moms Club seeking recipient for consignment sale donation


The Moms Club of Coastal Delaware is seeking child-centered certified non-profit organizations located in Sussex County to apply to receive funds from the 9th Annual Children’s Consignment Sale, to be held Oct. 4 and 5 in the Cape Henlopen High School gymnasium in Lewes.

Organizations such as the Greenwood Baby Pantry, the Children’s Beach House, Read Aloud Delaware, Sussex County Parents as Teachers, Sussex County Foster Parents Association, the Dakota McLamb Memorial Fund and Primeros Pasos Early Learning Center have been recipients in the past.

Charitable funds available are based on a percentage of gross sales of the event; last year, $6,400 was given to the recipient organization. Funds must be used to benefit children of Sussex County.

The Moms Club of Coastal Delaware requests the presence of the selected organization or organizations at the annual consignment sale as volunteers, as well as to present an informational table about the organization. Any selected beneficiary will also be included in subsequent press releases and advertisements.

Each application is reviewed to ensure that the organization serves children in Sussex County and that it meets Moms Club International guidelines. The Moms Club of Coastal Delaware has the right to reject any application that does not meet donation guidelines. The selected organization is chosen by the club membership, and all organizations that submitted applications will be notified.
