What’s Happening Today – April 13, 2020
Today on DelmarvaLife –
Many people on Delmarva are stepping up to help those on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. They’re using their talent and skills to produce items that might be in short supply. One of those people is Chris Woodall. He is a librarian at Salisbury University who has designed a way to produce face shields using 3D printing technology.
Local businesses are coming to the aid of those on the front lines. We talk with Kitchen Concepts Plus owner, Mike Donohue about how his business has changed and how he is helping protect the community.
Would you do just about anything for a hug from a loved one right now? That’s where the “have a HeART-Give a Hug” initiative comes into play. We talk with the executive director of the Art League of Ocean City to see how it works.
Most students across Delmarva are at the start of week five being out of school. Many of them never imagined they’d be away from their teachers this long. For the younger kids, the interruption from both education and a routine can be difficult. Fortunately, students at the Lower School at The Salisbury School have had some amazing opportunities. DelmarvaLife’s Katie Zarrilli talks with Dr. Andrea VanDiver, the head of the lower school about those opportunities.
We are in a war against the Coronavirus and the Boy Scouts are promoting family self‐reliance by supporting home gardening! Garden plots are being offered at the Akridge Scout Reservation just south of Dover, Delaware for any family in need of space to grow vegetables for
themselves. We learn how it works.
