WILMINGTON, Del., Oct. 08, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Children at a local homeless shelter will have the uniforms and supplies they need for school this year. The materials are purchased by the Sunday Breakfast Mission, which this month received a $5,000 grant from the Navient Foundation to support the initiative.
