Third graders at South Dover Elementary School are learning about citizenship through a statewide sleeping bag drive.

Lt. Gov. Matt Denn talked with the students at a reception highlighting the commitment to helping homeless children and children in foster care in Delaware. He says the gift of warmth is meaningful.

"We've got a lot of kids who are temporarily displaced and they often don't have all those blankets, sleeping bags and things that our kids have," he said.
