WILMINGTON — Delaware Tech’s Alumni Association will sponsor an Essential Items Drive to support students in need on April 20.


Surveys indicate that 54% of Delaware Tech students require financial assistance for tuition and school-related expenses, while 40% report food insecurity. In 2020, 285 students requested over $257,000 in emergency support.


Donations will be accepted on each campus in a drive-through, no-contact drop off area between 8 and 9 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., and 4:30 and 5:30 p.m.



Signage and directions to drop off locations will be posted on each campus. A list of requested items can be found to guide donation choices. All donated items will be distributed to Delaware Tech students through the Campus Food Pantries.


For those unable to physically donate on April 20, there is an option to donate through Amazon, or to offer financial assistance.
