DCH is thankful for all of our sponsors who make our work in the community possible. WSFS Bank supports the Branches to Chances® program and DCH public landscapes. We spoke with them about the importance of sponsoring these programs and working to build a greener, healthier community.

“The WSFS CARES Foundation is proud to support the Delaware Center for Horticulture’s (DCH) Branches to Chances® job training program for those unemployed, underemployed or previously incarcerated. This program provides opportunity, hands-on training, basic financial and computer literacy skills, which enable those who want to change and improve with chances to learn and grow in entry level positions in the horticulture industry. The skills learned through the program are just a stepping stone to viable employment in the industry or even entrepreneurship. This program exemplifies the passage, ‘Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.’ We also partner with DCH as advocates for creating healthier communities with our support of the Greenhill Avenue public landscape space, and are glad to play a role in beautifying our State through plants.” - Vernita L. Dorsey, Senior Vice President-Director of Community Strategy
