Schedule for Lt. Governor Matt Denn for Wednesday, February 22, 2012
Lt. Governor Matt Denn will visit Hanby Elementary School & Charles W. Bush Pre-School in the Brandywine School District. The current Hanby Elementary School is the former Brandywood Elementary School and the first day of classes in their new location was January 5, 2012. Hanby and the Bush Pre-School share the same building, so the Lt. Governor will tour both, meeting with both principals and staff and students from both schools.
The Lt. Governor will then participate in the National Prayer Luncheon.
Finally, the Lt. Governor will participate in Operation Warm’s “One Night Without Warmth.” One Night Without Warmth is a national awareness event for Operation Warm’s mission to provide new winter coats for children in need.
This year’s kickoff event will be held in Delaware and will specifically highlight Operation Warm’s Delaware Challenge, which is to provide a new winter coat to every elementary school child living in poverty in Delaware. In 2011, Operation Warm distributed 10,000 coats in Delaware through public elementary schools throughout the state of Delaware. They hope to increase this number until they reach every child living in poverty in Delaware.
The One Night Without Warmth event will take place on the University of Delaware on the North Green right off of Main Street in Newark, DE and will entail students holding a short, outdoor vigil as they stand in solidarity with children living in poverty who may not have a warm, winter coat. Brief presentations will be shared and music will be performed.
