Many area groups were involved with holiday giving projects. In the photo at left Jack Hollis and Michelle Cummings of the Western Sussex Boys & Girls Club pose with some of the more than 5,500 cans and food items collected in Seaford schools during the Sharing and Caring Food Drive. All food went to Associated Charities. Members of the Seaford Police Department adopted more than a dozen residents of local nursing homes and surprised them with gifts. In the photo at right Officer Phil Rockwell plays "Santa" with Rodney Boyd at Genesis Elder-Care.
