Mark your calendars for #DoMore24DE

March 4-5,2021. Do More 24 Delaware is a 24 hour day of giving designed to help nonprofits raise more money and engage new donors.

The organizers have a stretch pool of $75,000 that will be distributed to participating non-profit organizations based on the percentage of money they individually raise over those two days!  We need your help in receiving a percentage of the stretch pool!

Not only has First Tee – Delaware decided to participate in this 24 Hour Day of Giving, but we have also decided to help other non-profits in our area as well.

This year, on March 4th and 5th, we will also be collecting items to be distributed to the Veteran’s Medical Center and the Salvation Army Child Development Center. This collection is always done at our Annual Winter Celebration but was not possible this past year due to the limitations on indoor gatherings. We felt that the #DoMore24Delaware was the perfect time to continue our tradition of giving back.
(Preferable Unscented Products if Possible but Any will be Accepted)
  • Disposable Ear Loop Face Masks
  • Disposable Gloves
  • Disinfectant Wipes
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Baby Wipes
The collection site will be held at Ed Oliver’s Golf Course on March 4th and 5th from 12 noon to 3PM. Representatives from First Tee – Delaware will be there to assist with the collection and meet with everyone safely. WEATHER PERMITTING – SO PLEASE KEEP A WATCH ON OUR ALERTS PAGE OF OUR WEBSITE FOR ANY CHANGES.
This campaign also allows First Tee – Delaware to connect with donors that can help us continue our mission to support kids & teens through the programs we offer. To learn more about First Tee – Delaware, please visit
