Community Outreach

DEMCO’s annual fundraiser is called the Shofar Public Service Awards Celebration which is in it 6th year of existence. The evening attracts business, education, political and civic leaders together in one place – the heart of the first state – Dover, Delaware. This event is held at the Dover Downs hotel in the Rollins Center Grand ballroom. State and national leadership stand poised to honor those people who not only have sounded the clarion call for justice, but have through their efforts, significantly and positively impacted their communities, this nation and the world. Past honorees include Mrs. Geneva Fennell (district teacher), Mr. James Solomon (district teacher), Councilman Reuben Salters, Mrs. Virginia Carson (district teacher), Dr. Kenneth Bell (University educator), Judge Robert Young and Senator Tom Carper of Delaware, to name a few.

ALL- STAR WEEKEND & DEMCO: DEMCO has partnered with All-Star Weekend over the past three years to offer life skills workshops during this annual basketball tournament. This tournament attracts over 300 student athletes from the ages of 8 to adult across the Mid-Atlantic Region.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND GIFTS: Over the past six years DEMCO has given over $30,000 dollars in scholarships, donations & gifts for the education of our youth.
