LEAD360 Activation Projects

Posted by on January 12th, 2016

The 2015 winning projects from our LEAD360 Phase 2 program were activated nationally during the past year. Both Newark and Wilmington took part in implementing these projects in their local communities. The University of Delaware men’s basketball team worked with the City of Newark, the Jefferson Awards Foundation, and local businesses to distribute bags of food to local community members in need. This was part of a national movement called “The Future Isn’t Hungry” created by 12-year-old Brittany Amano from Hawaii. The LEAD360 program has been a platform for this project to grow year after year. In fall of 2015, Mayor Williams of Wilmington and his administration joined Bank of America and the Jefferson Awards Foundation to collect school supplies in order create DreamBoxes. In early January, the William “Hicks” Anderson Community Center of Wilmington was given over 150 DreamBoxes for the youth who attend the Center’s programs. DreamBoxes was Patricia Manubay’s BIG IDEA that the LEAD360 program helped to spread across the country.
