Center for the Inland Bays asks Delawareans to "Get Out for the Bays!"

The Center for the Inland Bays (CIB) is asking Delawareans to “Get Out for the Bays.”";s:

The Center for the Inland Bays (CIB) is launching a new fundraising initiative that's little different in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

It;s called "Get Out to the Bays."

“It is a peer-to-peer campaign, in which we’ll be calling on our supporters to select a goal-based outdoor activity, set up a virtual campaign online and then encourage their network of friends and loved ones to contribute money towards their efforts," said Anna Short, development Coordinator for The Center for the Indland Bays. "The Center for the Inland Bays is a great local organization here in Delaware. We do all sorts of work to protect the Inland Bays estuaries, that includes the Rehoboth Bay, Indian River Bay and Little Assawoman Bay. Pollution has a serious impact on the local environments. And we try really hard to clean up the Bays.”

Short says all of the proceeds raised during the campaign, which runs until September 30, 2020, will support the Center and its efforts to protect and restore Delaware’s Inland Bays.

She says typically with the end of summer comes the Center’s annual fundraising event, Decked Out, but like many nonprofits, the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted in-person activities.

Donate to the campaign can be made online.
