Many of those honored Monday night at the sixth annual “Salute to Service in Delaware” have devoted their long lives to serving others.
But some have also made a huge impact in their communities at a very young age.
And it was the youth who stole the show Monday as the Wilmington-based Jefferson Awards Foundation, partnered with The News Journal, honored young people, employees, entrepreneurs and businesses that dream and work toward changing the world.
More than 225 people were on hand at the Baby Grand in downtown Wilmington as nine awards were presented.
The Buccini/Pollin Group was recognized for donating nearly 1,000 art kits across Delaware for the Emma’s Art Kits Lead360 Challenge Activation.
