Horsey Foundation Fund hands out $49,000 to area sports groups Up to 4,000 youngsters will benefit from $49,024 in grants made by the Horsey Family Youth Foundation to support organized sports programs in Kent and Sussex counties. The 12 organizations receiving the grants were recognized by Horsey Family Youth Foundation Fund founders David and Pat Horsey at the fourth annual grants presentation held Tuesday, Aug. 19, at the Shore Thunder Starz Building in Laurel. The Horsey Family Youth Foundation Fund is a charitable fund of the Delaware
Community Foundation. “We see the Horsey Family Youth Foundation as a hands up, not a hands out organization,” said David Horsey. “All of the organizations we support work hard to provide opportunities for youngsters to learn from the experience of playing competitive team sports. It’s very rewarding for us to help with everything from purchasing ball bats to helping pay for travel and operating expenses.” In Laurel, the organizations receiving grants included Delaware Storm, Delaware
Swoop, Laurel Little League, Laurel Pop Warner, Laurel Wrestling Boosters, Shore Thunder Starz and Sussex Storm. Other awardees include the Georgetown Little League and Sussex Central Pop Warner in Georgetown, Harrington Pop Warner in Felton, the Woodbridge track team in Bridgeville and Caesar Rodney/Dover Raiders Pop Warner. The Horseys created the Horsey Family Youth Foundation Fund at the Delaware Community Foundation (DCF) to support programs for youth in Southern Delaware.
Their goal is to try to keep children off drugs and the streets by encouraging them to become involved in education and sports programs. An estimated 3,500 to 4,000 youngsters will benefit from the grants that provide organized league sports including baseball, softball, cheerleading, football and wrestling.
