Interview with Ken Sonse, a board member of the Delaware River and Bay Lighthouse Foundation, which is an all-volunteer organization that aims to restore lighthouses in the Delaware Bay area. Ken mentions that the foundation has raised a good amount of money in the past year, which was used on all the lighthouses on the Delaware River and Bay. Ken highlights the importance of the DoMore24 Delaware campaign, which allows the foundation to raise unrestricted funds and leverage their dollars with matching from other foundations. He also talks about how people can help by visiting their website, donating money or time, and getting involved in restoration trips. Ken says that the foundation also thinks of an education program and needs people to help with planning.
