Salesianum School Assembly on Veteran Homelessness
On Tuesday, Feb. 16, HUD Regional Administrator Jane C.W. Vincent joined Delaware Governor Jack Markell, New Castle County Executive Tom Gordon and other officials to thank Wilmington’s Salesianum, Padua and Ursuline Academy students for their fundraising efforts on behalf of homeless veterans in Delaware. During the 2014-15 school year, the students raised more than $200,000 for the Delaware Center for Homeless Veterans. In the following year, students held a drive to collect toiletries and household items for veterans who were recently housed through programs at HUD and the Veterans Administration as part of the Delaware Challenge to End Veteran Homelessness.
