Meals for Shields Summer BBQ

Please Join us  for a Summer BBQ for our First Responders and families!

Location:

(Former home to Twin Lakes Brewery)

In the hustle and bustle of Summer vacations, we often forget our men and women of the emergency services. As we always say, "No one eats alone in our Family!"  We are providing a BBQ for First Responders and their families. 

Join us for a day of food, fun, and fellowship. We will have a face painter and bounce house for the kids.  Games and prizes for the adults. Chili cook off for the different departments. Bring your fishing rods to fish in both of the twin lakes.

We encourage First Responders on duty to have a meal with your family to enjoy a little time together during a nice summer day. Can't break away? No worries. We will have volunteers to deliver food to your department or station.

Our goal for the Meals for Shields Summer BBQ is to feed 400 or more First Responders!

We rely heavily on food and monetary donations, so please help us who help others! We are accepting donations of the following at the Trauma Survivors Foundation's office - 2055 Limestone Road, Suite 109, Wilmington, DE 19808 or at the Delaware Association of Police.
